Providing Academic Support to Students Impacted by Harvey

August 29, 2017
Dear Baylor Faculty:

As President Livingstone indicated in her message to the University community yesterday, our hearts are heavy at the news of the devastation that has been caused by Hurricane Harvey. We need to pray for the victims and for everyone who is working to support those who are in need.

We have many students at Baylor who have family within the areas that have been affected or who call that area home. I am writing to ask that you please work with these students to support them during this difficult time. Within my office, I have asked Dr. Wes Null, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and Institutional Effectiveness, to serve as a point of contact for any academic deans who have questions about the steps that should be taken to support these students. Dr. Null has developed a list of Frequently Asked Questions that provide guidance as well. You may access these FAQs at the following link:

For continued updates on Baylor’s efforts to support our students and related information on how to support the recovery effort, please visit the University’s Harvey response website at this link:

We pray not only for the victims, but also for everyone who is assisting in the recovery effort.

Michael K. McLendon
Interim Provost
