Baylor University presented John and Marie Chiles of Dallas with one of the University's most distinguished awards -- the Baylor University Founders Medallion -- during the Founders Day ceremony Jan. 30 in Waco Hall. Established in 1969, the Founders Medal is reserved for those whose service and contributions have been unusually significant to the life and future of the University.
According to schedule, following approval by the Baylor University Board of Regents at its 2011 homecoming meeting, the university has published an online draft of its 10-year strategic plan. The University is inviting the Baylor community to review the draft plan and provide feedback. As a continuation of its strategic planning process, Baylor officials will hold on-campus meetings to consider the plan publicly and more fully. Comments and suggestions will be accepted on the strategic planning website through March, and the plan will be finalized at the end of the fiscal year in May.
