Graduate Research Center (GRC)
The Graduate Research Center provides Baylor graduate students and faculty with resources designed to support and inspire them in their academic endeavors. Located on the second floor of the W. R. Poage Legislative Library, the GRC may be accessed from the main Poage entrances or from the second-floor corridor between Moody Memorial and Jesse H. Jones libraries.
In addition to providing collaborative and individual spaces that foster inquiry and analysis, the GRC also provides programming throughout the year that addresses specific graduate student interests and needs. These events are hosted by Baylor Libraries and on-campus partners, including the Graduate Writing Center and the Counseling Center.
There are seven GRC PODs designated for small groups, up to 8 people, that can be reserved online. Select rooms feature a 60" or 80" screen with Barco ClickShare presentation systems. Clickshare devices can be found in the main hallway of the GRC. These rooms are great for group work and small meetings.
