The Formation Series is the HRC's common conversation about what it means to be formed as a whole person by a Baylor education--the fundamental commitment of our community. The Formation Series is one of the main ways our community comes together around the love of learning. Each Fall and Spring the HRC hosts a series of three public lectures. To earn Honors Units for participating, students must attend two events each term, and write a reflection essay on one of the events. Students may earn half an Honors Unit for one term, and a whole Honors Unit for both semesters. Taking part in a common conversation is an important component of any residential college and we hope you will join us this year as we learn and grow together.
Our topic this year is auctoritas, Latin for “influence."In these engaging presentations Formation lecturers will investigate the dynamic between moral formation and moral influence.
Honors Program students can satisfy some of their program requirements via the HRC Formation Series. To successfully earn an Honors Unit for participating in the Formation Series, students must attend two of the three Formation Series events each semester and write a critical reflection over one of the events each semester. ½ of an Honors Unit can be earned by fulfilling the requirements for one semester; a whole Unit can be earned by fulfilling the requirements for two semesters.
