2008 NCAA Gender Equity Manual : This manual was written with college and university administrators, general counsel, faculty athletics representatives, Title IX and equal opportunity officers, athletics administrators, staff, and student-athletes in mind. It is not intended to provide the lone standard by which an institution measures its compliance with Title IX or a formalistic blueprint for compliance with the NCAA-adopted principle of gender equity. Rather, it is hoped that this manual explains the law in a way that is accessible to those seeking to understand the law, to incorporate gender-equitable policies into existing athletics programs and to evaluate their implementation in a meaningful way.
Pregnant and Parenting Student Athletes: Resources and Model Policies - Developed at the request of the NCAA association-wide Committee on Women’s Athletics, the toolkit can help explain medical, legal and treatment issues and best practices to staff, coaches and student-athletes. A facilitator’s PowerPoint and notes, as well as video from the 2008 NCAA Convention panel on this topic are included on the handbook CD and web site.
