In Cutting Athletic Programs, Temple University Addresses Title IX Issues

templeTemple University has announced the elimination of seven varsity sports teams. Five men’s teams and two women’s teams will be eliminated. The women’s teams facing the axe are in softball and rowing.

While the university states that it “does not have the resources to equip, staff, and provide a positive competitive experience for 24 varsity sports,” it also admitted that the elimination of five men’s teams was made in part due to “the need to address Title IX spending imbalances.”

About 150 student athletes and nine coaches will be impacted by the elimination of the seven varsity sports.
