The new Sport, Health and Activity Research and Policy (SHARP) Center for Women and Girls* at the University of Michigan proudly announces a national conference to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Title IX, the landmark legislation that has changed the lives of women and girls.

Please save May 9-11, 2012 and plan to join us at the University of Michigan campus, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The conference will highlight the broad impact of the Title IX legislation on U.S. society. Political, social, historical, economic, and health-related effects will be explored along with an agenda for future research intended to fulfill the promise of Title IX. Undergraduate and graduate students from across the country will also have opportunities to participate, present, and discuss their research as it relates to the themes of this conference.
