Implementation Teams

Charged with the collaborative implementation of 105 recommendations for improvement to Baylor’s administrative and structural systems, policies, prevention, training and support related to sexual violence on our campus, the Sexual Assault Task Force leadership and action team members worked over the course of 16 months to implement recommended improvements and integrate operational responsibility for those improvements into functional departments of the University.

Continued improvement in our processes, policies and support for our students is an ongoing priority of Baylor University.


Purpose
Each Implementation Team was dedicated to a specific area of action as identified by Pepper Hamilton. Each Team had a designated Team Leader who met regularly with the Action Team. Brandyn Hicks monitored the progress of each Implementation Team, and developed progress reports with each Team Leader.
