Wayne State and Title IX Panel Discussion - March 22, 11am

Wayne State and Title IX Panel Discussion
Thursday, March 22
11 a.m.
Purdy/Kresge Library Simons Room (144)

Many people think of Title IX as mostly affecting sports but its reach on college campuses goes far beyond athletics. Before Title IX, discrimination against women was the norm, including things like different curfews for men and women, gender-based campus housing requirements and fewer scholarship opportunities for women, particularly those with families. Join the Wayne State University Library System and the Commission on the Status of Women for “Wayne State and Title IX,” a panel discussion that will cover different aspects of the law as it pertains to Wayne State and sexual harassment as well as its history and impact on athletics. This event is free and open to the community.

Panelists will include:
Antonia Abbey, Ph.D., professor, WSU Psychology department
Theresa Arist, chief of staff, WSU Athletics
Linda Galante, associate general counsel, WSU Office of General Counsel

For more information, please contact Alison Stankrauff at 577-4027 or ah0650@wayne.edu.

This event is part of the Wayne State University Library System’s Sesquicentennial Lecture Series, a series of panel discussions running throughout 2018 that focus on Wayne State history and its impact today.
