Baylor University is being praised for the improvements it has implemented following the release of a 2016 report, which found school officials failed to cultivate a safe campus environment and the football program acted as if it were “above the rules”. Baylor has been at the forefront of severely mishandled and misreported sexual assault allegations for the last six years now with student lawsuits claiming 31 athletes committed 52 rapes between 2011 and 2014. Several settlements have been reached with victims and some perpetrators are behind bars. Now, the Title IX experts who investigated Baylor’s shortcomings in the 2016 report, say the school has complied with its 105 recommendations for improved campus safety and reporting of sexual assaults. Attorneys Gina Maisto Smith and Leslie Gomez, who worked for Pepper Hamilton LLP at the time the 2016 report was released, issued another report verifying the changes made by the school. – Amy Rock, campussafetymagazine.comRead More
