Athletic Gender Equity Report

CHADRON STATE COLLEGE
Title IX Intercollegiate Athletics Report
October 2013

INTRODUCTION

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX), 20 U.S.C. §§ 1681 et seq., and its implementing regulations, 34 C.F.R. Part 106, prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance. Title IX prohibits sex-based discrimination in education programs, including athletics, and requires that each institution designate at least one Title IX coordinator to oversee compliance.

The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) of the U.S. Department of Education is responsible for enforcing Title IX of this amendment. Evidence of providing nondiscriminatory participation opportunities for individuals of both genders is determined by meeting the three (3) criteria as provided by the Office of Civil Rights:

  1. Participation – opportunities for male and female students is substantially proportionate to their respective enrollments in the College.

    One of the fundamental requirements of Title IX is that equitable opportunities to participate in intercollegiate sports must be offered to members of each gender. This does not mean that schools must offer identical athletics teams for males and females, or identical numbers of athletics participation opportunities. Rather, Title IX provides three separate ways to examine participation and meet that particular mandate.
    1. Prong One – Participation Opportunities Proportionate to Enrollment – A school can demonstrate compliance with this if it can show that the athletics participation rate of the under-represented sex is substantially proportionate to the school’s full-time undergraduate enrollment.
    2. Prong Two – History and Continuing Practice of Program Expansion – If an institution has a history and continued practice of program expansion that is demonstrably responsive to the developing interests and abilities of the under-represented sex.
    3. Prong Three – Effective Accommodation of Athletics Interests and Abilities – If the school can demonstrate that they are fully and effectively accommodating the interests and abilities of the under-represented sex.
  2. Athletic Financial Assistance – equitable allocation of scholarship dollars.
  3. Other Program Benefits – including the provision of equipment and supplies, scheduling, travel, tutoring, coaching, locker rooms, facilities, medical and training facilities and services, publicity, recruiting, and support services.

Chadron State College has elected to use the second prong for determining gender equity within its athletic program offerings: Chadron State College has increased women’s sport offerings and continues to demonstrate a history of program expansion. The male sport of football produces a significant higher total of male student-athletes which does not allow CSC to use Prong 1 (dealing with participation opportunities proportionate to enrollment). Efforts will continue to increase women’s sport offerings to expand opportunities for competition.
