Baylor Title IX coordinator resigns; results cited
Oct 06, 2016, 05:38
Baylor announced Crawford's resignation the day after two women who claimed they were sexually assaulted as students at Baylor joined a Title IX lawsuit against the university, originally filed in U.S. District Court in Waco on June 15.
KWTX reported that Baylor wanted to pay Crawford $1.5 million to stay at her position, with an additional $50,000 for signing a confidentiality agreement, after she filed a retaliation complaint.
Baylor hired Crawford as Title IX coordinator in November 2014. The school is the nation's largest Baptist university.
Baylor's response? A statement that painted Crawford as a gold-digger by revealing details of a mediation session - which just happens to violate Texas law, her attorney pointed out.
Baylor University was surprised by the action taken by Patty Crawford given her public comments in August about the strong support she felt from across the University.
Specifically, Crawford alleged that a group of Baylor administrators "made sure that they were protecting the brand. instead of our students".
Pepper Hamilton put forth more than 100 recommendations to eliminate what it deemed the school's "hostile" response to women who said they were assaulted.

Dunn said the university's upper management gave her the conflicted message of telling her to do her job, but then indicated that, "If you weren't here, we wouldn't have all these problems".
"The allegations are that I never had the authority, the resources, or the independence to do the job appropriately, which the Department of Education writes in its guidance for Title IX coordinators and universities", Crawford said.
"There was a mediation and Texas law is quite clear that you can not comment on what took place at the mediation", Dunne said. The Jane Doe 8 case would have come under Crawford's watch, but on Wednesday, Crawford said that she did not know about that particular case. In calling Crawford out, he said, Baylor itself has violated Texas state law.
"The University is grateful for Patty's leadership in establishing fair and equitable Title IX processes that are also supportive of the needs of survivors", Baylor said in its statement.
"The issue is, I was trying to create compliance with Title IX, and I was trying to be hopeful that the university was going to listen".
A spokeswoman for the school declined to comment on the lawsuit.
"Baylor set me up to fail", Patty Crawford, who resigned this week as Baylor's Title IX coordinator, said Wednesday in an interview on CBS This Morning.
