Baylor University Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

As a leading Christian institution with a strong Baptist identity and heritage that embraces both its global and Texan roots, Baylor University seeks to “educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community.” In line with this mission, we seek to embody Christ’s teachings of love and inclusivity across boundaries of racial, ethnic, gender, socio-economic, religious, and other expressions of human difference. Because, at Baylor, “Love thy neighbor” are not just words…they are a way of life.

President's Message on Diversity and Inclusion

As we daily commit ourselves to the task of embodying the teachings of Christ and the Christian tradition, we know that we are called to love our neighbor and to participate fully in the rich and diverse creation of God. Through this commitment we are eager to embody love, mercy, compassion, humility, and forgiveness and repentance, and we seek to treat all students, faculty, and staff with equal respect and to offer equal opportunities that they deserve as beloved children of God who are all created in God’s image.
