Friday, Jan. 29, 2016
9 - 3:45 p.m.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, prohibiting sex discrimination in federally funded programs, continues to influence the educational landscape. It raises complex compliance issues across the spectrum of the education system—from elementary and secondary districts to major research universities. Sports, Violence and Equality: Current Issues in Title IX Compliance, featuring Big East Commissioner Val Ackerman, will bring together regional and national experts to explore Title IX compliance as it impacts sports, violence and broad issues of equality on campus. The conference is co-sponsored by The David F. and Constance B. Girard-diCarlo Center for Ethics, Integrity and Compliance, The Jeffrey S. Moorad Center for the Study of Sports Law and The Villanova Law Institute to Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation.
The event takes place on Friday, Jan. 29 from 9 a.m-3:45 p.m. in the Laurence E. Hirsch ’71 classroom (Rm 101) at the Law School. This program is approved by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for 5.5 substantive credits.
