If you are being watched, leave now!

Determined whether an entire university is subject to Title IX if only one particular university program receives federal funds.

Full Case Title: 

Grove City College v. Bell, 465 U.S. 555 (1984)
  • Equal Educational Opportunities


  • Joined Amicus Brief


The Supreme Court substantially limited the impact of Title IX by holding that only the particular program that receives federal funds at a school has to treat men and women equally, rather than the school as a whole. Four years later, Congress passes the Civil Rights Restoration Act in part to restore full effectiveness to Title IX.
