Source:  Equity in Athletics Data Analysis Cutting Tool – Updated 8/26/2020

The Equity in Athletic Disclosure Act (EADA) requires an annual report from all co-educational postsecondary institutions that receive Title IV funding (i.e., those that participate in federal student aid programs) and that have an intercollegiate athletics program. This report to the U.S. Department of Education Office of Postsecondary Education (OPE) concerns intercollegiate athletic participation, staffing, and revenues and expenses, by men’s and women’s teams. OPE uses the data to report to Congress on gender equity in intercollegiate athletics.  To access a complete report for St. Olaf College and other institutions, please access the OPE analysis tool here.
