The Teaching Capstone in Higher Education program consists of five categories of tasks. Each category carries its own requirements and all five must be completed successfully to receive a Teaching Capstone in Higher Education. Upon completion of all five categories, you will compose a 5-10 page reflective essay and submit it along with all other relevant materials in packet form to the Graduate School. You sign up for the program at the beginning of the fall semester and must complete the program by the end of the spring semester in the same academic year. Upon successful review of your materials you will be awarded a Teaching Capstone in Higher Education and your successful completion of the program will be recorded on your Baylor transcript.

Signing up for the Teaching Capstone in Higher Education program is easy! Just complete the Intent to Participate form and submit it to the Office of Graduate Studies and Professional Development at the Graduate School (Associate Dean Laine Scales, Administrative Assistant Alanna Martinez). The deadline to sign up for TeaCHE is four weeks after the first day of classes in the fall semester. You then have one academic year to complete the requirements, with the final packet due two weeks before the last day of classes in the spring semester. Certain activities, including Categories 1 and 2 and select components of the other Categories, may be fulfilled prior to entering the program, with the remaining activities completed during your participation in the program (see the FAQ for details).
