WACO, TX (KXXV) -

A federal Title IX investigation into Baylor University was initiated Tuesday.

The U.S. Department of Education opened the investigation and added Baylor to the list of 215 post secondary institutions currently under sexual violence investigations.

The Office for Civil Rights opened the investigation after receiving a complaint from former Baylor Title IX Coordinator Patty Crawford.

According to the OCR, the office is “a neutral fact-finder” and will “collect and analyze all relevant evidence to develop its findings.

Baylor University released this statement from Interim President David E. Garland:

“Today I sent a letter to the U. S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights pledging Baylor University’s full cooperation with their Title IX review. Over the past year, Baylor has undergone a comprehensive assessment of its response to sexual violence resulting in the adoption of 105 recommendations for improvement. Within five months, we have completed or made significant progress on more than 90 percent of these recommendations. Should the OCR identify additional areas of improvement, we will work on those immediately. We are whole-heartedly committed to cultivating a safe and supportive environment for all members of the Baylor community.”
