SUPPORT PRIORITIES OF UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES ON BAYLOR GIVING DAY
Baylor students and faculty deserve the very best in academic support, whether that be research materials, computer facilities, or a comfortable learning environment. Your gift to the Library Dean's Excellence Fund provides the greatest flexibility and most immediate impact for making investments in the future of the Baylor Libraries.
Gifts to this fund support a wide range of projects, including the recently completed renovations to Moody Memorial Library’s first floor. Moody 1 is now a vibrant, inclusive, and cutting-edge area for individual, small group, and seminar-style instruction aimed at supporting the university’s goal of creating a “transformative undergraduate education” for our students.
What is Dean Archer’s Current Priority for the Dean's Excellence Fund?
Over the past year, the Libraries’ “Chairs for Bears” campaign – with funding from the Dean’s Excellence Fund - has raised the necessary capital to replace the 1968-era chairs on Moody Memorial Library’s first and second floors with new seating designed to fit the needs and preferences of today’s students. Now, only the 120 chairs on Moody 3 remain to be upgraded to these modern, sturdy “Lyric” chairs from Allsteel. Dean Archer will put all gifts to the Dean’s Excellence Fund raised on Giving Day toward the remaining $30,000 needed to complete the “Chairs for Bears” campaign.
