DALLAS – Federal statistics show that Baylor University did not report a single instance of sexual assault in a four-year span. That finding stands in sharp contrast to the many other private and public schools that made multiple reports over the same period.
The Baptist school of 16,000 students in Waco has faced mounting criticism over its response to sex assaults on campus. Some critics contend administrators fail to fully investigate complaints, including two involving football players who were later convicted.
Neena Chaudhry is senior counsel for the National Women's Law Center. She says it's never a good sign when there are no reports "because it's probably not true."
Department of Education statistics show Baylor reporting nothing from 2008 to 2011. The school has declined to address specific allegations.
