Dialogue With The Deans

They sit at the top of their academic divisions, accountable to the provost as well as to a retinue of independent-minded faculty members. They shape the curriculum, the direction and the quality of instruction for thousands of students. In this two-part series, we ask Baylor's 11 deans to give us a glimpse into their personalities by answering a specific question -- a perspective most might not get by simply interacting with the person behind the desk. The second part of the series will be in the September issue.
