IWF in the News: Athletics at Duquesne

Allison Kasic

Duquesne University announced yesterday that it is cutting four varsity sports programs as part of a "long-term competitive" initiative. The programs getting axed are baseball, men's swimming, men's golf, and wrestling.
While the school hasn't mentioned Title IX (they rarely do), Eric McErlain crunches the participation numbers over at Saving Sports and notices that by cutting all men's teams, Duquesne moves very close to the legal safe harbor of Title IX's proportionality measure. How convenient.
