For more than a year, Baylor leaders have been collecting and analyzing input from every part of the Baylor family in an effort to compile a new strategic plan for the university, aimed at building on the firm foundation laid over the past century and a half and highlighted by 10 years of unprecedented progress following the Baylor 2012 vision launched a decade ago.
That planning process is nearly complete. A draft of the plan was released for feedback in November, distributed in the winter issue of Baylor Magazine and posted on the university website. Members of the Baylor family — alumni, students, faculty/staff, parents and friends of the university — are encouraged to go online and share any final thoughts on the plan between now and the end of March.

Baylor administrators, led by Provost Elizabeth Davis, BBA ’84, will review any feedback received and make last-minute tweaks to the plan in time to present it to the Board of Regents at its meeting in mid May. Assuming the Board approves the plan at that time, it would then be implemented beginning in June.

After reading the plan linked above, if you have any thoughts (including suggestions for a name besides “the new strategic plan”), please do fill out the feedback form on the strategic plan website. This is sort of the “speak now or forever hold your peace” moment for this plan, so let Dr. Davis and others know what you think.
Sic ’em, Baylor family!
