Former Baylor president Ken Starr resigns from law faculty in 'mutually agreed separation'
Three months after he was ousted as president of Baylor University, Ken Starr has announced he is leaving his position as a law professor at the school.
Starr is leaving the law faculty in a “mutually agreed separation,” according to a statement released on Friday. WFAA, the Dallas Morning News, the Houston Chronicle and the Waco Tribune have stories.
Starr was removed as university president in May after an internal investigation by Pepper Hamilton found a “fundamental failure” in the school’s handling of allegations of sexual assault and dating violence against football players.
Starr resigned as chancellor a few days later, and said in an ESPN interview that he had been “behind a veil of ignorance” about the sexual assault problem.
Here is the full statement released by Starr and the university: “Effective today, Judge Ken Starr will be leaving his faculty status and tenure at Baylor University’s Law School. The mutually agreed separation comes with the greatest respect and love Judge Starr has for Baylor and with Baylor’s recognition and appreciation for Judge Starr’s many contributions to Baylor. Baylor wishes Judge Ken Starr well in his future endeavors. Judge Starr expresses his thanks to the Baylor family for the opportunity to serve as president and chancellor and is grateful for his time with the exceptional students of Baylor University who will lead and serve around the world.”
