Yesterday we hosted our annual Fall Staff Forum over the lunch hour at the Ferrell Center, where I provided an update on Illuminate, our University’s strategic plan, and we also learned a few tips on how to receive feedback from others.

Sept. 13, 2018 Orientation, Line Camp and Welcome Week are some of the first moments in a Bear’s journey at Baylor. All of these programs are organized by New Student Programs. However, since most of their events happen during the summer, many students are unaware of the work they do during the school year. “A lot of what we’re doing is wrapping up from the summer we just came out of, or already looking ahead for next year’s summer,” said Nathan Shelburne, New Student Programs director.
Sept. 18, 2018 Many U.S. employees believe working from home – or at least away from the office – can bring freedom and stress-free job satisfaction. A new Baylor University Hankamer School of Business study says, “Not so fast.” The research team, including lead author Sara Perry, Ph.D., assistant professor of management, and Emily Hunter, Ph.D., associate professor of management, examined the impact of remote work on employee well-being. “Any organization, regardless of the extent to which people work remotely, needs to consider well-being of their employees as they implement more flexible working practices,” the researchers wrote. (Eric Eckert, assistant director of Media Communications, pitched this research nationally.)
Sept. 17, 2018 It was the opportunity of a lifetime to sing the national anthem at Monday night's Astros game -- but as a cancer survivor 16-year-old Sophia Sereni of League City already has considerable life experience. Singing calms her through everything, with “everything” including two-and-a-half years of treatment to battle leukemia. She has been in remission for about a year. Sophia hopes to earn a music degree from Baylor University and pursue a career as a music minister at a church one day.
Every year, Dr. Randy Wood, a professor in Baylor’s School of Education, takes a group of Baylor students to Costa Rica over spring break to work with Santa Elena School in San Jose. They help raise money for books and equipment for the school, and help plan classroom lessons and activities. The hope is to […]
Baylor’s Student Union Building opened to the campus community 70 years ago this fall. But the SUB — officially the Bill Daniel Student Center — is far from ready to retire, having reinvented itself many times over the years. Groundbreaking for the SUB took place on June 1, 1940, on the site of what had […]
Among the topics that shape our nation, few have been more pressing or more ubiquitous recently than immigration. The subject can also be complex: What is “DACA”? Who are “dreamers”? What are the proper channels to legal immigration? At Baylor, we have one of the nation’s top experts on the subject. After more than a decade […]
When prospective students look to U.S. News & World Report’s college rankings over the coming year, they’ll again find Baylor’s light shining bright among the top universities in the state, conference and country.

WACO, Texas (Sept. 13, 2018) – Baylor University’s 25 inaugural McNair Scholars are ready to soar, like the program’s namesake Dr. Ronald E. McNair, a laser physicist and NASA astronaut who was inspired to work hard and persevere in his studies by his family and by a teacher who recognized and believed in his scientific potential.
