WILLIMANTIC- The Women’s Center of Eastern Connecticut State University will host the National Girls and Women in Sports Day, “The Title IX Forum,” from 3-4 p.m. on Feb. 6 in the Paul E. Johnson Room of the J. Eugene Smith Library. Students, professors and staff will share personal stories on the impact Title IX has had on their lives and careers. In 1972, the Title IX landmark legislation was passed, prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender in higher education institutions. Since then, Title IX has expanded access to all educational programs, including admissions, financial aid, employment and athletics.
