WACO, Texas (AP) – A leading university-accrediting body has issued a “warning” to Baylor University that the school’s compliance with the body’s standards will be closely monitored for the next year.

Baylor said in a statement it was notified by the Southern Association of College and Schools earlier this month that it will monitor the university’s compliance with three standards: whether university student support services are adequate, institutional control of intercollegiate athletics is firm and a healthy, safe and secure student environment is being maintained.

The Board of Regents has told The Wall Street Journal that 17 women had reported domestic violence or sexual assaults involving 19 football players since 2011, including four gang rapes. They told The Dallas Morning News that about 125 cases of sexual assault or harassment campus-wide were under review. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
