The ambitious strategic planning process set into motion last year by Baylor President John M. Lilley is bearing its first fruit.
Of the 59 proposals submitted earlier this year as part of Baylor's strategic planning process, nine have been selected for immediate funding and the other 50 are scheduled either for future fundraising initiatives or further study. These initiatives will enhance academic offerings, expand campus facilities and move the University closer to full achievement of the goals of Baylor 2012.
On June 1, 2007, Dr. David E. Garland, The William B. Hinson Professor of Christian Scriptures at Baylor's George W. Truett Theological Seminary, succeeded Paul Powell as Truett dean. Randy Fiedler of BaylorNews spoke with Dr. Garland about the opportunities and challenges ahead for the seminary.
