Dickinson will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Title IX with a week of events, guest speakers and activities, leading up to Homecoming weekend. On Monday, September 24th, in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter Auditorium (ATS), the college will present key note speaker, Pat Genovese. Genovese is the winningest coach in the history of NCAA lacrosse, men or women, at Division I, II or III. She began her career coaching several programs at the time of the passage of Title IX. Genovese has played an integral role in, not only the development and growth of women's sports, but the the development and growth of opportunities for women, both on and off the playing field.

Title IX Archive Display in Kline
Celebrate Sport Mosaic in Kline – Celebrate the sports that have made such a difference in your life and add your photo and thoughts to our Celebrate Sport Mosaic which will be displayed in the lobby of the Kline Center. The top of the board will read "Can you imagine your life without sports?" If your answer is no, then please write a brief statement as to why, attach a picture and email it to Coach Henry (firstname.lastname@example.org). It can be a head shot, a photo of you playing your sport or even a photo of you as a kid, where it all began! If you'd like to include a picture but don't have access to one right away, you are welcome to send your response in two parts; first the statement and then the photo. But either way, please be a part of this activity as we celebrate our involvement in sports. This activity is for both men and women. Sports have enriched all of our lives and the fact that Title IX gave more opportunity to women has had a positive effect on us all. Let's collaborate and show why we love our sports and how our participation in sports has made us the people that we are today. This will be an ongoing project but please do reply soon.
