As part of a year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Title IX legislation, Illinois State University Athletics is excited to launch a Title IX-inspired line of apparel.

This first crewneck sweatshirt is available now in-store and online at the Alamo II in Uptown Normal as well as the men’s basketball games and select women’s basketball games this winter. The design features the commemorative 50th-anniversary logo lockup created by Evan Walles, a graphic designer in the University Marketing and Communications department at Illinois State.

Designed by Kelli Aho, assistant director of graphic design with Illinois State Athletics, the four forthcoming apparel designs will feature slogans inspired by current Redbird female student-athletes that celebrate women.
