Volume 3 Number 1

Engelhardt2 (w x h, 0 KB)Dear Alumni and Friends:

When I first arrived at Baylor last year, I frequently heard the words "Welcome to the Baylor family." At first, I heard these words with an emphasis on "welcome," and people seemed genuinely pleased that I was here and wanted to help me feel as comfortable as possible. But soon I discovered that the emphasis was on the "Baylor family" part. As most of you already know, Baylor is a unique place in the world that both prides itself on and works intentionally at providing a firstclass education and a caring environment—for our students, employees, communities and, indeed, our world.

Over the past year, I have been learning about and trying to fortify some of the wonderful connections so many people have with Baylor and the School of Education. Frequently our students (and occasionally their parents) testify to the great experiences students are having at Baylor. I have met with alumni in Orlando, Houston, Austin, New Orleans, and Boston; I've had lunch with a number of retired Education faculty; and I've met with folks who are participating in various ways in one of our many program or mission partnerships. One thing is clear from such interactions: those who know Baylor and the School of Education cherish their associations with the School and frequently wish those relationships were stronger.

Some of you desire a better connection with what's currently happening at Baylor and with others who have shared the Baylor experience. For you, we are exploring the creation of a Baylor Education Network, an informal relationship system facilitated by the Internet where participants can get and give information and can connect with others with Baylor ties around common areas of interest. Others of you desire to be part of a legacy that helps ensure there is a Baylor School of Education and future graduates to continue making a difference in the world. For you, there are abundant opportunities to establish scholarships and other gifts that "touch the future."

In this issue of Impact, we share with you information on some great things going on in the School of Education. We also feature a student, Lupe Zuniga, who, without someone's gift to the future, would never have become part of our Baylor family.
