A tenured professor from Baylor University has resigned amid several Title IX complaints against him. 

The Baylor Philosophy department announced Friday that Dr. Trent Dougherty resigned from his position as Associate Professor of Philosophy. 

The department said in a news release that Dougherty was the subject of multiple complaints under Baylor's Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment and Interpersonal Violence Policy. 

Dougherty was found to be "responsible" on some of the allegations. 

The department released a statement, saying: 

The Department of Philosophy expresses its deep appreciation for the courage of the Complainants in coming forward, for their willingness to make their complaints known, and for their patient participation in the process.

The investigation also found additional concerns under "other Baylor policies."
