OCR Investigating ‘Financial Discrimination’ Against Men at Tulane

Article here. Excerpt:

'The United States Department of Education has launched a Title IX investigation into Tulane University amid allegations the school engages in "financial discrimination" against male students and prospective applicants.

According to an August 20 letter obtained by PJ Media, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has agreed to investigate whether six female-only scholarships violate Title IX, the 1972 federal law that prohibits universities from discrimination due to sex.

Scholarships under investigation include the Landor Lewis and Shirley Gauff Awards, the Grace Hopper Celebration Award, and the school’s Summer Internship Funding Grant,which offers up to $2,000 annually for female students to take on unpaid internships.

The full scope of "financial discrimination" by Tulane is unknown. The six scholarships listed in the Title IX complaint may only comprise a small fraction of all female-only scholarships at the school, as private universities typically do not list all scholarships on their website.

According to the complaint, male students at Tulane are left in the dust. Even though men are only 42 percent of the student body and are also less likely to graduate, Tulane continues to boast of programs and scholarships exclusively for women.

This is surprising, because if anyone needs a "boost" in higher education now, it’s men.'
