Baylor 101

Being a part of a dynamic and growing organization means that sometimes it is important to go back to the basics. That is the idea behind Baylor 101. You may have questions about areas of the University’s operations, ranging from what will be in that big building being constructed at the corner of I-35 and University Parks to why can’t we simply tap into the University’s endowment to fund strategic priorities. Baylor 101 is intended to share insights and information on topics of interest to faculty and staff in easy-to-consume, brief updates throughout the year. 

Who: All Baylor Faculty and Staff 

What: Conversations with various University leaders who will address topics of interest and take questions. 

When: Monthly (except December and summer months).

    October 27 at 1:00 p.m. – Baylor’s Endowment
    What is Baylor’s endowment, how is it managed and how it is used to benefit the University? These and other key questions will be answered by Baylor’s Chief Business Officer Brett Dalton and Chief Investment Officer Dave Morehead. Hosted by Vice President for Advancement David Rosselli, this session will help you understand the importance of the endowment to the health of the University.

    November 8 at 1:00 p.m. – About the Board of Regents
    The Board of Regents is the official governing body of Baylor University. Comprised of volunteer leaders from a diverse group of industries and experiences, the Board includes many alumni and parents of current or former Baylor students. Board Chair Mark Rountree will host this session and share more about the men and women who serve with him on the Board and discuss what they do to support and secure the future of the University.

Where: Baylor 101 sessions will be held virtually for your convenience and provide an opportunity for viewers to easily ask questions. We’ll archive the sessions online in the event the times aren’t convenient for you.

We are developing upcoming Baylor 101s focusing on understanding the endowment … the Board of Regents … construction projects … Baylor as a Christian R1 university … and the Baylor Admissions process, including a sneak peek at the Mark and Paula Hurd Welcome Center.
