Ball State Possibly Violated Title Nine

Last updated on Tuesday, June 30, 2009

(MUNCIE) - The Ball State Athletic Department is under scrutiny for a possible violation of Title Nine, according to a published report.

The Star-Press of Muncie reports that a four-person team from the US Department of Education, office of civil rights was in Muncie earlier this month investigating a complaint that the school failed to provide equal intercollegiate athletic opportunities for men and women.

The newspaper reports that the investigation is likely centered on operating budget comparisons between men's and women's sports, locker room space, and the availability of the weight room at Fisher Training Complex to sports other than football.
