Baylor University and Judge Ken Starr issued a joint statement Friday stating that Starr will be leaving his tenure status at Baylor University’s Law School.

According to the release, the change is effective immediately.

Starr was the former President and Chancellor of the university.

In midst of the findings of the Pepper Hamilton report regarding Baylor’s handling of sexual assault on campus, the Board of Regents announced personnel changes.

On May 26th, Starr's title as president was removed and Dr. David Garland was named the interim University President. Art Briles was suspended with the intent to fire him and Athletic Director Ian McCaw was placed on probation.

Just four days later, on May 30th, McCaw resigned.

Starr resigned as Chancellor on June 1.

On June 24th, Art Briles and Baylor announced they would be ending their "employment relationship."

Incoming freshmen said the recent announcement doesn't change their attitude for the upcoming year.

"Baylor is always going to be close and going to be a tight community no matter what, and we're going to pull through whatever happens," Baylor freshman Gabby Hoffman said.
