WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor University has named Doug Welch as the chief compliance officer.

The CCO position is responsible for identifying compliance needs, overseeing training to ensure compliance and assess the effectiveness of existing systems.

The position was among the 105 recommendations from the Pepper Hamilton investigation that focused on improving how Baylor responds to sexual assaults cases.

"Doug Welch is a highly qualified attorney with an expertise in the areas of compliance and higher education," Baylor Interim President David E. Garland said. "His leadership will enable the University to continue to make rapid progress on the recommendations and foster a culture of compliance throughout the University."

Welch graduated from Baylor in 1986 with a B.B.A. in accounting. After three years in accounting, he entered law school and received his degree in 1992.

"I am honored to accept the role of Chief Compliance Officer and humbled by the trust the senior administration has placed in me," Welch said. "I look forward to this new challenge, which will allow me to continue fostering solid working relationships already in place across campus, as well as building new ones in the effort to carry out the University’s mission.”
