Taught by leading practitioners in the field of Title IX Compliance

“I am so excited to be teaching in the Title IX program at Tulane. As a civil rights attorney and advocate for girls and women in sports, I am forever grateful to those who came before me, because I was part of the first generation that benefited from the passage of Title IX. These courses fill the gulf between what experts and laypeople know. Title IX compliance in athletic departments is relatively straightforward. The law should be readily accessible, but currently, it is not.”

—Nancy Hogshead-Makar, J.D. -CEO, Champion Women; Advocacy for Girls and Women in Sports
