WACO, Texas — A settlement in the Title IX lawsuit against Baylor University has been reached following months of 'talks' in an Alternative Dispute Resolution ordered by the court.

According to court documents, talks of this settlement began May 9, 2023 and lasted through Sept. 15. 

Baylor University released the following statement to 6 News:

“We are deeply sorry for anyone connected with the Baylor community who has been harmed by sexual violence. While we can never erase the reprehensible acts of the past, we pray that this agreement will allow these 15 survivors to move forward in a supportive manner.”
