Based on a vote by members of the Baylor Alumni Association, the Transition Agreement did not pass.
A total of 1,499 votes were cast. There were 830 ‘yes’ votes and 668 ‘no’ votes. One vote was counted illegal for being in favor of both yes and no. Since 1,000 ‘yes’ votes were needed for the agreement to pass, the BAA will continue as an independent entity.
The BAA bylaws state that two thirds of the alumni present needed to vote ‘yes’ for the agreement to pass.
