Title IX expert Jessica Gavora joins College Sports Council team



The College Sports Council (CSC) announced today that Title IX expert Jessica Gavora has joined the organization as Communications Director.

Gavora is a writer, public policy expert and author of Tilting the Playing Field: Schools, Sports, Sex and Title IX. She previously served as the founder and leader of the Play Fair Project of the Independent Women's Forum, a Washington, DC group dedicated to equal opportunity for women.

"Jessica has always been a leader on the issue of Title IX reform. She is a gifted communicator with tremendous expertise in public policy. She is the perfect person to make the case for ending the senseless damage inflicted on our college athletes by the gender quota. I think I speak for everyone in the College Sports Council in saying that we are very excited to have Jessica on our team," said Leo Kocher, CSC President.

"This is a match made in heaven," said Gavora. "The College Sports Council is out there on the ground, every day, ensuring that both men and women have equality before the law in collegiate athletics. I look forward to bringing my knowledge of the politics and policy of Title IX to their good work."

In addition to her work for the Independent Women's Forum, Gavora previously served as speechwriter and senior policy advisor at the Department of Justice. She is currently a consultant for Gingrich Communications, a company headed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

The College Sports Council is a national coalition of sports associations devoted to the promotion and preservation of the student-athlete experience.
