CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – This past Tuesday, the Lesley University Athletics Department, along with the student-athletes, had the privilege of welcoming Erin Buzuvis to our campus. A Law Professor at Western New England University, Buzuvis came to LU to speak on the topic of Gender Equity and Title IX.

An expert in the field, Buzuvis researches and writes about gender and discrimination in sport, including such topics as the interrelation of law and sports culture, intersecting sexual orientation and race discrimination in women's athletics, retaliation against coaches in collegiate women's sports, the role of interest surveys in Title IX compliance, participation policies for transgender and intersex athletes, and Title IX and competitive cheer. Additionally, she is a co-founder and contributor to the Title IX Blog, an interdisciplinary resource for news, legal developments, commentary, and scholarship about Title IX's application to athletics and education.
