Proposals requested for 2013-14 Engaged Learning Groups

Nov. 13, 2012

The Provost's Office is seeking proposals for the establishment of new Engaged Learning Groups for the 2013-14 academic year.

Engaged Learning Groups have been part of Baylor's new student experience for the past six years. ELGs are team-taught living and learning experiences for freshmen that seek to integrate academic coursework with student life. ELG faculty teach the same group of freshmen for the entire academic year (fall 2013 and spring 2014) while the students earn credit for core academic courses. ELGs are residential in nature, and all ELG freshmen typically live in Kokernot Residence Hall.

To identify students who will participate in our fall 2013 ELGs, we need to select our ELGs well in advance of the fall semester so that Admissions can recruit students appropriately and students can make decisions on which ELGs they think are most appropriate for them. As a result, we are requiring that all ELG applications be received by December 14, 2012. Wes Null, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, will oversee the review and selection process. Selections will be made by January 15, 2013 for ELGs that will commence in August 2013.
