Carroll Science: At the heart of the Baylor campus for more than a century

Today, we think about Burleson Quadrangle as a complete set; it’s hard to imagine Old Main and Burleson Hall without Carroll Science Hall and Carroll Library defining the quad on either side. But at the turn of the 20th century, that was exactly how things stood for Baylor students. Outside of some flanking buildings that housed students and a […]

Black Christian News Network One: New Gallup Survey Shows 9 Out of 10 Americans Turn to Prayer to Heal Themselves, Others

April 26, 2016
According to a new study by Baylor University, nine out of 10 Americans seek God for healing when they fall ill, in addition to relying on doctors. “It was very surprising,” said the study’s author, Jeff Levin, Ph.D., M.P.H., University Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health in Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion (ISR). “I was expecting that some proportion of the population would be involved in this, but I wasn’t expecting the numbers to be so high.” Levin was also stunned to find that nearly 80 percent of Americans have prayed for their own healing, with almost a third admitting they do this frequently. (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, pitched the research nationally. She covers ISR research and faculty.)

Insurance Journal: Getting Away with Unethical Conduct

May 2, 2016
Article about a recent study from Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business that investigated why employees’ unethical behaviors may be tolerated instead of rejected. The story quotes lead author Matthew J. Quade, Ph.D., assistant professor of management. “In this study, we’re asking the questions: When and why are people ostracized – or excluded from the group – while at work?” Quade said. “Our research contributes to an ongoing conversation regarding whether people’s competence is more important than morality within the context of organizations.” (Eric Eckert, Baylor Media Communications specialist, pitched this story nationally. He covers faculty and research in the Hankamer School of Business.)
