Baylor University statement re: “Violated” by Lavigne/Schlabach:

August 15, 2017

"We share the authors’ view that student sexual violence is a complex and important problem that defies simple solutions. We are deeply sorry for anyone connected with the Baylor community who has been harmed by sexual violence.

"This book focuses on tragic events that took place several years ago. Since then, Baylor has hired a new President, a new Director of Athletics and a new Head Football Coach. We also have revised our policies and procedures for addressing and preventing sexual violence. It has been more than a year since the University adopted 105 sweeping improvements in policies and procedures that have now been structurally completed and make Baylor a model institution for Title IX responses to sexual assault."
