The Baylor Interdisciplinary Poverty Initiative (BIPI) is designed to create a catalyst for social change around issues of poverty, social justice, and human capability. The project is administered through the Division of Student Life in partnership with a faculty director and advisory committee. There is a focus on discipline-based service, and faculty partnerships and civic research is encouraged.
BIPI serves as the umbrella for several affiliate projects and initiatives such as the Campus Kitchens Project at Baylor, an interdisciplinary minor in Poverty and Social Justice, an 8-10 week summer internship and fellowship program, issue specific immersion trips, conferences and symposia.
