Baylor University has received a comprehensive briefing from Pepper Hamilton on how they handle sexual assault situations.

The University hired the firm last September to conduct an independent and external investigation of the University’s response to reports of sexual and interpersonal violence . 

They have not released any findings from the review.

“These deliberations are vital as we seek to preserve and reinforce trust in Baylor University,” said Richard Willis, B.B.A. ’81, M.B.A. ’82, chair of the Board of Regents. “Thoroughly understanding the findings and acting on the recommendations to ensure the safety of all students are the Board’s highest priority.”

The Board will consider the information provided in the briefing and determine how to decisively act upon Pepper Hamilton’s findings and recommendations.
