GSSW rises in the national rankings
"The School was celebrated for Diana’s leadership in ways that have helped increase our ranking year after year; now, as the School is honored to carry her name, we will continue to be recognized for the ways she shaped our teaching and research endeavors," Singletary said. "Year after year, Diana reminded us that we work hard, not for this recognition, but because we are called to be faithful. We have a history of not paying attention to the numbers that are counted by these scores, but to the impact we hope to have because of our commitment to quality education and scholarship. However, it is an honor to be recognized by our peers, and I am grateful that they see the quality of what we are doing."
HS seniors participate in Invitation to Excellence at BU
Twice a year, high-achieving high school seniors are invited to campus to participate in a weekend of activities to introduce potential students to Baylor’s academic rigor and exceptional faculty. With participation comes a $2000 scholarship and an opportunity to apply for a full tuition Faculty Scholarship.

At the end of January, 120 prospective students joined an interdisciplinary group of 14 faculty members from the Robbins College of Health and Human Sciences, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Honors College and the Diana R. Garland School of Social Work to work through a scenario entitled “Meeting the Health Care Needs of Our Neighbors”.

Some Waco schools could be getting additional help next fall if the Waco Independent School District board of trustees awards funding to Baylor University to assist Waco ISD administrators with behavior improvement and family relationship building.

Titled the Be Emotional Aware and Responsive — or BEAR — Project, four Baylor staff members and 16 graduate students will offer help to six campuses with needed improvements, such as classroom management and student behavior.

If the board approves the project Thursday, the Diana R. Garland School of Social Work and the School of Education would receive a total of about $1.5 million over three years to pay for staff and research.
