Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Contains budget planning material, correspondence, information sheets, memos, notes, project planning material, reports, and other materials documenting the history of the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women.
Women's Intercollegiate Athletics began as a separate department at UC Berkeley in 1976-77 with 12 sports. Its development followed the enactment of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which led colleges and universities nationwide to search for ways to generate greater equity within women's intercollegiate athletics. In 1973, Barbara Hoepner was appointed acting coordinator Women's Intercollegiate Sports at Berkeley, and a Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Intercollegiate Athletics for women was formed. The department, established three years later, had its own director and was separate from the Department of Men's Intercollegiate Athletics. Luella Lilly was hired as its chair and reported directly to the vice chancellor for administration.
