|Which College Department is complying better with Title IX - Engineering or Athletic?|
|We compared the
percentage of female athletes competing at the 348 NCAA Division I
schools with the percentage of female graduates from 344 Engineering
Colleges and here's what we found:
* Female students comprised over 45% of NCAA I athletes in 2014 but only 19% of engineering college graduates.
* Surprisingly only 13% of computer science graduates were women, 30+ years into the information age.
* When you back football out of the calculations, the percentage of NCAA women to male athletes is virtually 50/50.
* During the last 10 years, the percentage of female NCAA I athletes increased around 6% while the percentage of female engineering college graduates decreased about 7%.
So based on hard numbers, which department is best complying with the intent of Title IX?
|While Title IX is synonymous with
college sports, the law in fact applies to ALL college departments and
programs. Title IX does not technically impose quotas on schools, but
many schools have made difficult decisions to drop certain sports in
part to meet Title IX safe harbor guidelines. However other college
departments subject to the same law do not appear to have
the same mandate or urgency to comply.
Of course the argument made is that the disparity in percentages is due to there being significantly more male than female interest in fields such as engineering, physics, etc. However this is the same argument that was made about collegiate sports when Title IX was enacted some 40 years ago, and yet most college athletic departments have made compliance a priority and have virtually achieved gender parity. Not an unreasonable question to ask whether other school departments are being held to the same standard that college athletic departments are in complying with Title IX.

|* Engineering College graduate statistics are from the
American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) 2013 survey of
undergraduates from 344 Engineering Colleges. These colleges tend to be
among the larger universities in the United States and the vast majority
schools are also NCAA I member institutions.
