Join or Renew Your Membership to Round Table


Baylor Round Table is an organization consisting of faculty women and female staff with executive benefits and the wives of faculty and wives of staff with executive benefits. The purpose is to promote the social and cultural life of Baylor University. Monthly meetings are held September-May and smaller interest groups also meet throughout the year. Each year the Baylor Round Table donates a scholarship to a deserving Baylor student.

Our theme for 2014-2015 will be Celebrating Baylor: Catch the Spirit!

Celebrating Baylor Round Table… Join as we work together to enhance community building through social, cultural, and service opportunities. We will share our varied interests and attend special lectures and presentations while enjoying Baylor’s rich Christian heritage and traditions of giving back to the community and to our students through scholarship.

The Baylor Round Table Scholarship, awarded annually, provides an opportunity to make a difference in a Baylor student’s educational experience and future. Our contributions to this fund, which can be made as tributes, memorials, and/or special gifts, are an investment in Baylor’s future, because our students are our future.

Baylor Round Table…Join today, connect for a lifetime!

Round Table Interest Groups

Interest groups are a vital part of Round Table. These groups provide opportunities for women across all parts of the Baylor family to meet on a regular basis in a common interest. These gatherings are where you get to know each other in a more intimate setting. Some of these groups meet monthly, and others meet occasionally during the year, and some are just a one-time event. (read more about this year's interest groups here)
