Although Title IX prohibits sex discrimination campus-wide, it has been defined to apply to intercollegiate athletics in three specific areas: Participation, Scholarships and Treatment of Existing Athletes and Programs. Title IX compliance requires equity as that term has been defined under the law in each of these three areas. Brandeis University believes that all student-athletes have a right to participate in an athletic program free of discrimination, including sexual harassment and retaliation. Brandeis University believes in the educational value of intercollegiate athletics and as such offers a competitive NCAA Division III varsity athletics program and is a member of the University Athletics Association. As a NCAA Division III institution, Brandeis University does not offer athletics scholarships.

Participation in intercollegiate athletics is a privilege and as such, those who participate agree to abide by the rules and regulations set forth by the NCAA, University Athletics Association and Brandeis University. Participation on the intercollegiate level requires a serious time commitment and the ability to balance a competitive athletics experience within a rigorous academic environment. Brandeis student-athletes are expected to strive for excellence both academically and athletically. Beyond varsity sports participation, opportunities are also offered through robust club sports and intramural sports programs.
