Summary:
Gender discrimination in college sports. Establishes a joint subcommittee to study gender discrimination in college sports. The joint subcommittee is requested to (i) review the requirements of Title IX of the federal Education Amendments of 1972, relative to the impact on female participation in intercollegiate sports; (ii) determine the extent to which Virginia colleges and universities are in compliance with Title IX through a comprehensive examination of the institution's financial assistance to the women's athletic program, whether the institution accommodates women's athletic interests and abilities, using the criteria imposed by Title IX for such determination, and whether other benefits, opportunities, and treatments afforded sports participants are equivalent; and (iii) make such recommendations as the joint subcommittee may deem necessary to ensure that Virginia institutions of higher education comply with federal laws and regulations prohibiting gender discrimination. Referred by Speaker's letter to the House Committee on Education to conduct the study.
