Academic summit fosters discussion on improving tenure process
Earlier this month, a number of Baylor professors and administrators gathered for an Academic Summit organized by President Lilley and Provost O’Brien to review the tenure process at Baylor and to make suggestions for its improvement. Master Teacher Robert Baird moderated and shared his thoughts about the summit in an opinion piece for the Waco Tribune-Herald. Judging from Dr. Baird’s comments, Baylor is making good progress towards improving the tenure process for all those involved. That’s good news for faculty and that’s good news for Baylor.
Sic ’em, President Lilley, Provost O’Brien, Dr. Baird and all the summer summitters!
