I invite you to review all of the fourth-year accomplishments of these task forces, as well as the trajectory for their work in the coming year, by clicking on the sidebars in the upper right portion of this page.
For each Act of Determination in A&Spire where work remains to be done and goals have been defined for the coming year, we will pursue these goals within the framework of Baylor University's strategic plan, Illuminate. The faculty and staff of the College of Arts & Sciences will work together to provide leadership that not only fulfills our proposed aspirations, but that also contributes dynamically to the larger vision of our great university. Illuminate captures the vision and goals we articulated in A&Spire, as well as providing additional opportunities for teaching and research in the Arts & Sciences. As we move forward, I welcome your feedback.
