Addressing Title IX Compliance At UNM

1206 Line Title IX

August 10, 2018 – Finances aren’t the only issue in the UNM Athletics Department. The university also appears to be out of compliance with Title IX when it comes to equity in opportunities for male and female athletes.

Correspondent Khalil Ekulona sits down this week with Athletic Director Eddie Nuñez, UNM Title IX coordinator Heather Cowan, report author Helen Grant, and political psychologist Martha Burk. They discuss how compliance is measured, what changes could be considered to bring UNM Athletics into compliance and what university officials will do in the future to ensure women have equal opportunities in sports.

August 3, 2018 – Albuquerque attorney Greg Williams specializes in open government cases. He also has a son who is about to start at UNM and expected to play soccer at the university. The UNM Board of Regents vote in July to cut four sports at the university, including soccer. At least two complaints have been filed about how the regents handled communication with the public and allege they violated the state Open Meetings Act. Williams stopped by this week to share his personal and professional reactions to the regents’ decision.
