A&Spire to Illuminate Signature Academic Initiatives

The following Signature Academic Initiatives were envisioned and vetted through several pathways and committees at the University during the past few years. They merit consideration for support because they focus on assisting Baylor to achieve the lofty strategic aspirations in Illuminate. Further vetting by the University may result in the advancement of only a few of the strategic initiatives outlined here, while other new initiatives may emerge in the future. We need this flexibility in planning for a five-year time interval. Further, each academic department has created a five-year hiring plan that may or may not include the following initiatives:

Health

Materials Science

Human Flourishing, Leadership and Ethics

Baylor in Latin America

Data Sciences
