The International Student and Scholar Services provides orientation and immigration services for incoming international students and scholars, as well as facilitation of and advocacy for Baylor's Study Abroad and Exchange programs. During 2012, over 500 international students and scholars from 73 countries were present on the Baylor campus, and during the past academic year, more than 820 American Baylor students participated in Baylor's over 104 outgoing study abroad and exchange affiliate programs for academic credit.
The Center is dedicated to the support and success of all Baylor students, abroad and here on campus. The Center's mission of "bringing the world to Baylor and sending Baylor to the world" starts with the individual student.
Each day, the Center's staff strives to encourage the growth of tolerance, understanding, respect and compassion within each student by actively seeking to create opportunities for international and American students to interact.
The Center works to provide the most positive experiences for international students and faculty, and to emphasize the contributions of our international guests to the student body. By attracting top students from all over the world, both international and American students' horizons are broadened beyond their immediate culture.
