Scholarship and award opened to men after Title IX complaint

Article here. Excerpt:

'The University of Minnesota is a little bit more fair to men now, thanks to a Title IX complaint by a professor who doesn’t even teach there.

Mark Perry of the University of Michigan-Flint, also a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, shared a letter he received from UMinn’s Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Wednesday.

Perry had written to the Title IX coordinator this summer to ask how the taxpayer-funded university can legally offer two scholarships and an award solely to “women-identified students.”
Perry’s complaint was forwarded to the EOAA, which determined the “women-identified” requirement in the award and second scholarship, both offered through the Women’s Center, must be eliminated.

The first scholarship will no longer be administered by the Women’s Center “if it is restricted to woman-identified students,” EOAA Director Tina Marisam told Perry in the letter.

There is no avenue for him to appeal, but Perry called the revisions a “small victory” in an email to The College Fix.'
