Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a simple law. Title IX states that no institution receiving federal funds shall discriminate on the basis of sex in its administration of educational programs or activities. In the last twenty years, however, Title IX has undergone various changes in its application, remedial power, and enforcement ability. Today, in light of several judicial decisions flowing from recent litigation, it appears that Title IX is quickly gaining momentum and causing great concern among academics and athletic departments alike.
