What are colleges doing to prevent sexual violence?

CENTRAL TEXAS, TX (KXXV) -

Local colleges and universities have programs in place to help prevent sexual assault from occurring.

Baylor University

  • The University canceled two separate interviews scheduled with the Title IX Coordinator and News Channel 25. Baylor sent us this statement: 

“Baylor expects a candid assessment and clear recommendations for improvement and will determine how best to act on the Pepper Hamilton recommendations once received. Until the recommendations are received, we believe it is vital to the integrity of the process that we refrain from speaking about the institutional response to incidents. During this interim period, we have focused our energies on listening to our students, implementing prevention programs, and taking actions that best ensure all students have full access to support services and the important resources of our Title IX Office"

  • ?On the University’s Title IX web page, it shows Baylor participated in April’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
