The study focuses on student-athletes' perceptions of the D-III
institutions' achievements in equity between genders in their
athletic programs as mandated by Title IX. The study was conducted
at the ten institutions in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate
Conference (AMCC) providing a final useable data set of 450
student-athletes. Thirteen criteria of equity were assessed (Good
Sports Inc. & Title IX and Gender Equity Specialists, 2003).
The student-athletes served as a guide to the perceptions of equity
at their institution, while the athletic directors provided
information concerning the institutional perspectives. The study
revealed that male and female student-athletes perceived equity in
eight of thirteen programmatic areas. There were five of thirteen
areas in which male and female student-athletes perceived that men
were treated better than women. The second part of the study
investigated whether gender and various college characteristics
affected the perception of gender equity among student athletes.
The study concluded that gender, GPA, and type of institution
(public vs. private) were significant independent variables in the
model. The study concludes with recommendations for athletic
directors and institutions for improving both the perception and
the reality of gender equity among student athletes.
