Enhance involvement of the entire Baylor family
To involve the entire range of groups with ties to the University in meaningful relationships with Baylor, we will use emerging technologies to facilitate increased on- and off-campus events, conferences, and outreach programs not only for students, faculty, and staff, but also for key off-campus constituent groups. Included in the groups with whom Baylor will interact on a regular and concerted basis are prospective students and their parents, alumni, the Central Texas community, Baptists and other Christians, government and other regulatory bodies, and members of the higher education community of institutions. Baylor will strengthen and focus its recruiting efforts to introduce a wider audience to the University at a younger age through the effective use of campus facilities.

Progress Summary

  1. Use emerging technologies to facilitate increased on- and off- campus events, conferences, and outreach programs not only for students, faculty, and staff, but also for key off-campus constituent groups. The development of Event Management Technology by Baylor Network personnel and its expanded use on campus, when combined with the Baylor Content Management System and the new online social network (inCircle) fulfill this goal of Imperative IX.
  2. Included in the groups with whom Baylor will interact on a regular and concerted basis are prospective students and their parents, alumni, the Central Texas community, Baptists and other Christians, government and other regulatory bodies, and members of the higher education community of institutions. Progress is being made. The breadth of groups interacting with the Baylor Network is wide and the number of interactions is increasing.
  3. Strengthen and focus recruiting efforts to introduce a wider audience to the University at a younger age through the effective use of campus facilities. The Mayborn Museum complex now attracts thousands of children to campus.
