MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Middle Tennessee State University has confirmed that schools officials are investigating accusations of sexual discrimination within the university’s athletics department.

According to an email sent to athletics department personnel Nov. 6 and obtained Wednesday by The Daily News Journal (https://on.dnj.com/1IU9FCd ), Title IX officer Marian Wilson said the Institutional Equity and Compliance Office began investigating the department after learning of allegations of sexual discrimination.

Officials have not said whether the investigation involves an athlete, team, coach or athletics department administrator.

MTSU Athletics Director Chris Massaro confirmed an investigation is ongoing but could not elaborate further.

The Department of Institutional Equity and Compliance at MTSU was established in 2005. The office is charged with providing leadership and direction on campus as part of the university’s commitment to institutional equity and compliance.
