Emphasize global education
Recognizing that its sphere of Christian influence is the world itself, Baylor must prepare its graduates to enter a pluralistic and global society. To strengthen our efforts in international education, we will increase the number and quality of Baylor's international programs, raise the level of participation by students in study-abroad programs and the percentage of international students on campus, expand international opportunities for faculty and graduate students, enrich the quality and application of the study of modern foreign languages and gather an ethnically diverse faculty and student body.

Original Goals to Achieve Imperative XI
  • Strengthen existing international programs and develop stronger university relationships outside of the United States
  • Expand opportunities for graduate student and faculty experience
  • Develop international student and alumni networks throughout Baylor's curricula
  • Increase participation of undergraduate students in study-abroad programs to 30 percent
