Authorities examining whether Baylor broke a federal civil rights law

The education department has “really stepped up” its national enforcement as more students make allegations against their schools, said Neena Chaudhry, director of education and senior counsel at the National Women’s Law Center. Schools must comply with Title IX to receive federal funding. Baylor, the nation’s largest Southern Baptist university, is now one of 10 Texas colleges and universities the department’s civil rights office is examining as part of Title IX sexual violence investigations.
