About Daniel P. Eady

Previously, Eady has held administrative positions at Baylor University, including the position of Chief of Staff to the Provost, a position he held during Baylor’s design and implementation of their long-range strategic plan.  He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Baylor University in 1996, graduating summa cum laude and named the top graduating senior in the university. In 1999, he earned his Masters of Education Degree from Harvard University with a concentration in Higher Education Administration, Planning, and Social Policy.
