Colleges and universities across the country are hiring permanent, full-time Title IX coordinators as they look for ways to more fully implement the 42-year-old law.

Dartmouth, the University of Missouri-Columbia, Franklin and Marshall, and Harvard are among many schools that have added the position this year. Most are on a list of 76 schools being investigated the U.S. Department of Education for alleged violation of some provisions of Title IX. The schools included Title IX enforcement as part of an administrator’s other duties.

Missouri is not one of the schools being investigated, but it was the focus of attention when the ESPN show “Outside the Lines” reported that in 2008 the school had failed to investigate an alleged rape a star football player who went on to be convicted of a later rape.
