UTSA caps off Women’s History Month with national speaker on the history of Title IX

March 29, 2022

MARCH 28, 2022 — UTSA Athletics and the UTSA College of Liberal and Fine Arts (COLFA) will host sports historian Victoria Jackson from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29, at the Retama Auditorium in the Student Union, (SU 2.02.02). Jackson’s lecture, “Fifty Years of Title IX: The Past, Present, and Future of Women’s College Sports,” will be a discussion on the positive impact of Title IX on women’s sports.

The event serves as a capstone for Women’s History Month at UTSA, which has featured guest speakers from across the nation, historical sessions celebrating successes in the field of women’s rights and interactive discussions that have encouraged dialogue in safe, productive environments.

“The last 50 years, with the passing of Title IX in 1972, has brought tremendous opportunity to girls and women, particularly in sports,” said UTSA Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Lisa Campos. “Title IX is not specific to sports, but that is what it is mainly known for. After the passing of Title IX, we have seen the number of women participating (in sports) grow exponentially. Dr. Jackson is such a leader in this space, and to host someone of her caliber is really exciting. This is an incredible opportunity for the UTSA community to learn from her research and study of Title IX.”
