WelcomeBaylor 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!

Plan now for the largest ever Baylor Round Table Scholarship Christmas Silent Auction and say "WOW!"
The holidays are mere weeks away; but to find that very special, one-of-a-kind gift, you don’t have to look any further than the upcoming Baylor Round Table Silent Auction to be held in conjunction with the Baylor Round Table Christmas Program. On Tuesday, December 9, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., join your Round Table friends in the Treasure Room at Armstrong Browning Library for this year’s "WOW-factor" shopping extravaganza! The Scholarship Committee, in collaboration with the Baylor and Waco communities, has provided an amazing array of auction items that will bestow beautiful memories in your own home or in the homes of your friends and loved ones. Plus, ALL PROCEEDS from each item purchased will go to benefit the Baylor Round Table Endowed Scholarship in our efforts to make a difference in the lives of Baylor students.
We encourage everyone to bring your checkbook or credit card with you to the Treasure Room and place your bid(s) on the unique items on display on December 9. With the auction opening this year at 9:00 a.m., there will be more time to shop before the Christmas program begins, as well as additional time to bid following the luncheon. And for the first time, should your schedule not permit you to join in the on-site festivities on auction day, you will be able to participate in proxy bidding. A complete list of all auction items [including the item description, donor(s), item values, minimum bids for each item, bidding increments for each item, and photos] appear at
Silent Auction 2014. For those members who will not be in attendance, you may submit your maximum bid(s) for the item(s) you desire (by auction item number and name) via email to Paulette_Edwards@baylor.edu AND to Amber_Thompson@baylor.edu between December 3-8, and your bid will be placed for you via that particular item’s bidding increments up to your maximum [see full details on Website]. If you are interested in bidding by proxy on a gift basket, you can also e-mail for a list of the basket items. Should you be the winning bidder for any given item via proxy, the item(s) will be delivered to you on auction day or your next earliest day of availability, and full payment will be due at the time of delivery.

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)
