This Article will examine the manner in which the federal courts have handled sex-based employment discrimination claims against colleges and universities. Specifically, the Article will suggest that most such judicial opinions have construed and applied the applicable federal laws in a manner inconsistent with Congress' articulated desire to promote equal employment opportunity in, and to remove the taint of sex-biased decisionmaking from, the academic profession. In light of this judicial misconstruction of the remedial statutes, the Article proposes a different framework for analyzing Title VII and Title IX claims that will more adequately promote Congress' twin objectives.
