Unidentified in October, approximately three weeks before the presidential election, was that the Department of Education pointed to Franklin Pierce University in the furious national debate on transgender athletes. The department, even under Trump's administration, said he was concerned that the small private institution in New Hampshire was violating the rights of athletes assigned to women at birth by allowing certain people's transgender people to compete against them.

The Civil Rights Office of the Department agreed to reduce a civil rights probe that had opened, but only after the university agrees and not to let the transgender athletes play against the women of CISSENDER.

The department's posture sent a clear message to other universities and universities: they could also come by scrutiny for civil rights violations if they allowed transgender women to compete as women.

"The meaning was definitely alarming," said Joanna Hoffman, athlete spokesman Ally, a defense group that promotes equality in sports, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression of gender. "We did not see it as a sign of the NCAA but to the institutions that support the transgender athletes."

As the national debate about whether transgender athletes should be able to compete as women continue rage, a spokesman for the Department of Education under the Biden administration did not explicitly respond last week when asked If the department had changed the position taken by the Trump administration a few months ago.
