To witness the progress of Baylor 2012, the university's 10-year vision, all one needs to do is take a quick look around campus, as work continues on the most ambitious construction schedule in Baylor's 157-year history.

If you can't take a tour in person, see the latest photos to the right. For the live construction cameras from the "Building the Vision" web site, click on Baylor Sciences Building or Jeanes Discovery Center.

The Baylor Sciences Building

Work began in June 2002 on the four-story, 500,000-square-foot facility that will be the largest academic center on campus. Completion is scheduled for August 2004. For a fact sheet on the Baylor Sciences Building, as well coverage of the May 2002 groundbreaking, click here.

The Jeanes Discovery Center

The $23-million Harry and Anna Jeanes Discovery Center, the centerpiece of the Sue and Frank Mayborn Natural Science and Cultural History Museum Complex, is expected to be ready in spring 2004. For more about the components of the Discovery Center, click here.

The Stacy Riddle Forum

The two-story, 51,000-square-foot Stacy Riddle Forum across from Collins Hall will be completed in early 2003. For more details about the $5.5 million structure, click here.

Dutton Avenue Office and Parking Facility

A new office and parking facility will be ready by fall 2003 at the corner of Dutton Avenue and University Parks Drive where the university-owned Baylor Landing Apartments used to stand. The new structure includes parking spaces for 1,200 vehicles and 30,000 square feet of office space for Baylor academic, information technology and other administrative departments.
