Baylor Title IX leader resigns amid dispute over her role

🕐 1 min read

WACO, Texas (AP) — The Title IX coordinator for Baylor University has resigned over a disagreement in her role overseeing changes at the Baptist school following claims it mishandled sexual assault cases over several years.

The university said in a statement late Monday that Patty Crawford was “disappointed” in her role implementing recommendations by the law firm Pepper Hamilton.

The firm determined that the school mishandled rape allegations for years and the football program operated as it if was above the rules.

Pepper Hamilton’s recommendations were meant to eliminate what it deemed a “hostile” response to women who said they were assaulted.

Two more women on Monday joined a Title IX civil rights lawsuit against the school, bringing the number of plaintiffs in the case to eight.
