Northwest State University (NSU), a NCAA Division II institution, had made some progress in complying with Title IX, but university administrators acknowledged that compliance has not been achieved. There were six teams for women; the college undergraduate population consists of 60 percent women. Male athletes on six teams received 75 percent of the grants-in-aid. When the university committed an annual addition of $100,000 from student fees for athletics, the athletic director was asked to submit a proposal to the president for how these monies would be allocated. He proposed the following:
• Add a volleyball coach (thus creating two positions instead of the former volleyball coach /softball coach combination)
• Add partial and full grants in aid for women$40,000
• Add partial and full grants in aid for men$20,000
This proposal would raise the percentage of grants-in-aid for women to 40 percent.
a) What requirements of Title IX were being violated by NSU prior to the new funding? Was this ethical?
b) What requirements, if any, of Title IX would be violated if they proposal of the athletic director were to be implemented? Would this be ethical?
c) What are the relationships, if any, among the number of teams, percentage of students by gender, and percentage of grants-in-aid and compliance with Title IX?
