NCAA rules prohibit the awarding of any NCAA championship to an institution that does not provide a credible title for the event.
If an institution does not fulfill this requirement, it is not eligible for the award of the championship.
NCAA Title IX Coordinator Jill Dreyer said the title is a function of the school, and if a school is not providing a title, it will not be eligible for an NCAA title.
Dreyer did say there are some schools who do not provide titles, but said they would not receive the title.
Dreyers office has not been able to find a single instance where the title has been awarded to an individual school.
Drake said it is “a pretty clear and clear indication that the university is not following the NCAA rules.”
“It’s also pretty clear that they are not following all of the other Title IX provisions that are in place,” she said.
Duke University has not issued a title.
However, in January 2016, it received a Title IX complaint alleging it violated Title IX by not providing its student-athletes with official athletic apparel.
Drexel University, which is also a member of the NCAA, has not responded to the complaint.
While DreyER has been unable to find instances of schools not fulfilling the NCAA’s Title IX obligations, the NCAA said it has seen instances of universities violating Title IX rules by failing to provide uniforms or athletic equipment to student-on-student athletics.
The NCAA says it has taken steps to ensure that colleges follow Title IX requirements.
The NCAA says schools that violate Title IX also are required to “prevent and eliminate discrimination in athletics by all student-instructors, coaches, student-support staff and the faculty and staff of any institution.”
The NCAA also has a website with additional resources and rules that are intended to help colleges implement the new rules.
Drexel’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion said it did not respond to a request for comment.
