Build with integrity a winning athletic tradition in all sports
Baylor recognizes both the vital role of athletics in the life of the collegiate institution and the potential for harm from misplaced priorities.

Progress Summary

  1. Pursuant to the goal of creating a winning tradition with complete integrity, Baylor will participate across the full spectrum of men's and women's athletics and will strive to be competitive in every athletic venue in which it participates. We have made progress in all measures of competition. In 2006-07, 13 of our 18 teams participated in post-season play; 6 teams were ranked in the top 20 in the nation; and we finished 38th in the NACDA Director's Cup.
  2. We will achieve graduation rates comparable with the very finest Division I schools and integrate student-athletes into the full range of student life. The NCAA graduation rate for Baylor student-athletes increased to 61% in 2006.
