Baylor Names New Faculty-In-Residence for Engineering and Computer Science Living-Learning Center, Faculty Master for Honors Residential College
Baylor University has announced the appointments of two faculty members, who will reside on the campus as faculty-in-residence beginning in fall 2011. Dr. Ian Gravagne, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Baylor, has been appointed as the new faculty-in-residence for the Engineering and Computer Science Living-Learning Center. Dr. Todd Buras, associate professor of philosophy and department director of undergraduate studies, has been appointed as the new Faculty Master for the Honors Residential College.
Students rarely compartmentalize their lives. Studying is not relegated to the library, academic conversations are held in the dining halls as well as the classroom, and faculty members want to be involved in multiple arenas of students' lives. It is this vision of an academically integrated lifestyle that drives CL&L to offer numerous avenues for students to combine their academic pursuits with their residential experience.
