Another opportunity to share your campus perspectives

Baylor University continues to cooperate with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in their Title IX investigation on our campus. For the last several months, we have been working collaboratively with OCR to provide timely and responsive information about our policies, procedures, and practices. Last month, OCR began the process of visiting our campus to hear from interested students, faculty and staff regarding their experiences and perspective regarding Baylor's efforts to prevent and address sex- and gender-based harassment and violence. OCR will be on campus again next week to continue this stage of the process. We encourage interested community members to take advantage of this opportunity.
