PhD candidate Celene Reynolds has won the 2016 Sally Hacker Graduate Student Paper Award from the ASA Sex and Gender Section for her article “The Mobilization of Title IX in Colleges and Universities, 1994-2014.” The paper provides the first systematic analysis of how Title IX has been used in response to perceived gender inequality in higher education. Drawing on new data acquired through the Freedom of Information Act, the paper analyzes all resolved Title IX complaints filed with the Office of Civil Rights against four-year nonprofit colleges and universities from 1994 to 2014.
