Ignite will change the way Baylor works to support Illuminate. This transformation will simplify and standardize the university's complex processes and supporting technology to allow more faculty and staff effort to focus on Baylor's mission and serving students. 


Presidential Perspective - October 18, 2018 Oct. 31, 2018 This week reminds me of a popular nursery rhyme: "Rain, rain, go away. Come again another day …" The Brazos River next to campus has become a raging waterway due to all of the rain, and the temperatures certainly don't feel like mid-October. But it's a good time to grab some coffee from Common Grounds, stay indoors and study, research or simply read a good book. Hopefully, we will see the sun again soon. Ignite Brings Baylor's Financial, HR, Systems to the Cloud Sep. 19, 2018 Baylor's financial and human resources systems are in the initial stages of a major overhaul. Becky King said that the older Enterprise Resource Planning software needs a major update to be able to support projects like Illuminate, Baylor's five-year strategic plan. This initiative, called Ignite, will only affect the university's old Enterprise Resource Planning systems, which include processes such as financial management, budget planning, human resources and payroll. Presidential Perspective - August 23, 2018 Aug. 23, 2018 What a great start to the fall semester! It was so good to see our returning students and welcome our new freshmen, transfer students and graduate students to campus. So many smiling faces! Presidential Perspective - August 2, 2018 Aug. 2, 2018 It has certainly been a busy, productive summer as the University community has continued building out our Illuminate Academic Strategic Plan, while also preparing for the upcoming fall semester. Baylor is definitely moving forward in a big way.
