USC is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the landmark federal legislation that helped usher in and ensure gender equity in education, with a yearlong series of events and activities.

Visit the website Title IX: 50 Years of Progress to read the stories of USC Trailblazers who have made tremendous progress advancing the principles of the legislation during their time at USC and beyond. Plus learn about Title IX’s impact at USC and the celebrations planned throughout the year.

Check out the message about Title IX from President Carol L. Folt, and re-watch the USC Athletics kick-off event that featured a mini documentary chronicling Title IX’s impact on the Women of Troy, and a panel of USC Trailblazers, athletes and leaders discussing Title IX and what the future holds.
