The Fall 2019 issue of Baylor Impact — a special Centennial issue — is now available online. Check it out to explore the history of the Baylor School of Education, learn about plans for the future, and meet the recipients of our Centennial Awards!
In this issue, you’ll learn how Baylor’s earliest leaders were committed to not only higher education but also K-12 education in Texas — decades before the School of Education was established in 1919. You’ll meet some interesting characters, including a donkey-riding dean, and gain a historical perspective with the at-a-glance timeline.
And we hope you will pay special attention to messages from our Interim Dean and department chairs that outline our path for the future.
Even though our Centennial celebration year is coming to an end, we will maintain the Centennial website as a resource and reference, and you are invited visit it and explore: baylor.edu/SOE/100
You’ll find the Centennial video on the home page there.
The SOE Centennial Exhibit at the Mayborn Museum has also been extended — until March 2020. So if you are enjoying the Mayborn during the holidays or early 2020, stop by the exhibit.
School of Education graduates should have received a printed copy of Impact in the mail. If you are a graduate and did not receive a printed copy, please email us at BaylorImpact@baylor.edu. Also feel free to email us with any news that the School needs to know!
