Share Your Thoughts
We want to know if you have a comment or concern about anything in the Law School’s academic program, activities, services, or life at Baylor Law!
All comments and concerns that apply to a large segment of the student body will be addressed individually with the student(s) raising an issue or at the quarterly Student Relations Committee (“SRC”) Meetings. Comments and concerns that only apply to individuals – whether students, faculty, or staff member – will be handled individually and are not shared with the larger group.
At Baylor Law, we have a variety of ways that you can relay your comments and concerns to the faculty and administration. As primary contact points, you may share your thoughts with:
- Interim Associate Dean Matt Cordon,
- Senior Assistant Dean Angela Cruseturner, or
- Director of Student Affairs Katherine Sims.
- You are also welcome to share your opinions with a faculty or staff member with whom you feel comfortable.
Please know that we are concerned with the substance of concerns, not the identity of the person raising issues.
Student Bar Association:
The Student Bar Association (“SBA”) is another primary collection point for many comments and concerns. The SBA has a Student Relations Member, Lily Gilliland, to whom you may submit your comments and concerns. The Student Relations Member keeps comments and concerns anonymous when relaying the information to faculty and administration.
The SBA also periodically hosts Town Halls for 1L, 2L, and 3L classes during the quarter. Students can share their comments and concerns with SBA members at these meetings to be raised at the next SRC Meeting. The Student Relations Member collects and passes all the comments and concerns to Katherine Sims in advance of the meeting.
The SRC meets on an as-needed basis, generally once per quarter. At the SRC Meeting, the committee members address the comments and concerns collected from all sources and give reports on any past agenda items for which there is an update. The committee members on the faculty and staff take necessary steps to address issues that need further action. A record of the shared concerns and the status of each can be seen here: Report on Action Items.
After the SRC Meeting, the SBA holds “reverse Town Halls” to relay the information shared in the SRC Meeting back to the students. The SBA may also follow up with individual students to address personal concerns or to direct the student to a faculty or staff member to address a particular issue.
Dissatisfaction with the resolution of any of the matters listed should be directed to Associate Dean Matt Cordon. If a student is dissatisfied after visiting with Dean Wilson, the student can raise the issue with Dean Wilson.
Student Relations Committee:
The Student Relations Committee is a combination of administration, faculty, and students who meet to discuss and address the student body's concerns. As noted above, the SRC addresses student concerns based on reports made to student organization representatives, directly with a Baylor Law faculty or staff member, anonymous reports, etc., and observations from the representatives themselves. This committee also addresses student health and wellness matters and reviews and coordinates student fundraising activities.
You can express your concerns to the committee by:
1. Completing this anonymous form;
2. Sharing your thoughts at an SBA-hosted Town Hall Meeting; or
3. Sharing your thoughts directly with one of the committee members. Here is a list of the current committee members:
- Lee Ann James (Chair)
- Kristine Bridges
- Matt Cordon
- Angela Cruseturner
- Robert Little
- Brandon Quarles
- Katherine Sims
- Rick Sowell
The SBA class presidents and a representative from the Baylor Law Review also rotate onto the committee and are available to receive comments.
