PURPOSEThe heart of the Baylor experience is developed on-campus in the union of shared experiences and relationships. In keeping with Pro Futuris, Baylor University seeks to continue to increase the percentage of undergraduates who live on campus and also enhance quality residential environments. Central to this effort is the goal of Campus Living & Learning (CL&L) to further enhance engagement between students and faculty. The Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) program at Baylor University exists to assist CL&L with fostering and shaping the social, cultural, educational, and spiritual life within Baylor's residential communities. As such, FIR work collaboratively with CL&L leadership and residence hall staff to nurture a heightened sense of community that fosters academic excellence, promotes faculty-student interaction, and enriches the student living experience.
