A statement from President Carter in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Title IX:
"The University of Nebraska is proud to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX. This landmark legislation has opened up access and opportunity for generations of girls and women. And as the father of a daughter, a lifelong champion of education and a sports lover, Title IX means a great deal to me personally and professionally. In reflecting on Title IX's legacy and meaning, we thank the pioneers who led the way, and look forward to further success and progress for women in sports and education."
