"Baylor and Hankamer Have an Excellent Balance between Teaching and Research"


"We strive to be very deliberate in capturing all the great activities that are going on in conmnunicating these accomplishments on a firly frequent basis."

As these values are manifested through policies, faculty-student relationships, collaboration among faculty, research efforts and other tangible behaviors, another output is produced, according to Van Gray, director of accreditation and planning for the Hankamer School of Business: caring.

A key component of Gray's role involves collecting input from a diverse collection of Hankamer constituents - current students, alumni, business leaders who hire alumni, and other stakeholders - as part of an ongoing strategic planning process.

"I believe that our faculty and staff really are committed to this mission of preparing, within a Christian context, men and women for global leadership positions."
