Baylor President: Search Input

September 16, 2016

Dear Baylor Family,

As the Presidential Search Committee embarks on the important work of selecting Baylor University’s 15th President, we invite you to share your valuable input regarding the professional and personal characteristics and experiences important to our University’s leader. Additionally, we welcome your thoughts on potential candidates for the role of Baylor President. A website has been designed for Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni, Parents and Friends to provide their input and receive periodic updates.

In addition to any input you would like to share, we ask for your ongoing prayers throughout this process – prayers that our University will continue to be on mission to shape the lives of our students for leadership and service; prayers for this search committee, that we will seek the candidate God intends for Baylor; and prayers for our next President, that he or she will recognize the call to serve Baylor University.

To provide your input online, please visit and select "search input form." This form will guide you through areas in which we seek your thoughts and ideas. The form will remain available online through November 18, 2016.

I am humbled to serve as the chair of the Presidential Search Committee. Baylor is a remarkable University that holds a distinctive place in higher education for its commitment to academic excellence grounded in Christian faith. My Baylor experience is filled with friendships that have endured throughout my adult life and faculty who poured into academic endeavors that prepared me to pursue my life’s work. Each person on the Search Committee has their own Baylor story that has led them to accept the responsibility of service on this committee. We commit to working thoughtfully and prayerfully on behalf of the Baylor Family and look forward to welcoming the 15th President to Baylor University.
