Scandal Fallout

Accrediting committee recommends no punishment for Baylor over sexual assault scandal | KCENTV.com, Baylor University's accreditation appears to be safe after a special committee investigating the school found that it was in compliance on a number of key issues.

Baylor confident in accreditation review | The Baylor Lariat, Livingstone said the committee spent several days on campus and met with over a hundred of university staff members. The report specifically named key campus partners such as Baylor University’s Department of Public Safety, Health Services Center, Title IX Office, Counseling Center, Division of Student Life and the Division of Academic Affairs, saying that Baylor had “streamlined processes and systems to engage the entire university community.”

The committee also interviewed several student groups on campus including the Title IX Student Advisory Council and Baylor’s It’s On Us chapter, student regents, Chamber of Commerce members and community leaders from Campus Living and Learning.

The committee reported staff was “competent and well-trained to address Title IX reports” and that students were “directly involved in supporting the awareness of Title IX and the steps necessary to make a report.”
