ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a Dear Colleague letter withdrawing a 2005 interpretation of Title IX policy issued by the U.S. administration. Title IX, which was enacted in 1972, prohibits sex discrimination among educational institutions that receive federal aid for programs and activities. Based on the 2005 ruling, schools are allowed to use a survey to justify a lack of athletic interest. It is clarified in the letter that the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the Department of Education (DoE) requires using multiple indicators to evaluate athletic interests.
