LA GRANDE — Eastern Oregon University athletic director Anji Weissenfluh said Title IX was woven into the culture at the university long before she arrived in La Grande.

“I have been fortunate in my time at Eastern,” she said. “My predecessors, Peggy Anderson and Rob Cashell, have been building it for decades. I think Eastern is a leader in gender equity. Eastern has been at the forefront in making sure everything was equitable from locker rooms, facilities and sports. I have been able to continue that.”
