Leaders of Campus Diversity Initiatives Report Progress

WACO, Texas (May 19, 2017) – As Baylor University continues to pursue an environment that exhibits cultural humility and inclusion, the work of two groups is making an impact. For the past 18 months, a Special Assistant to the University President and the 15-member President’s Advisory Council on Diversity (PACD) have been working across the University to build programs, complete agreements and organize initiatives that provide an environment of acceptance and support for students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds.

Another opportunity to share your campus perspectives

Baylor University continues to cooperate with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in their Title IX investigation on our campus. For the last several months, we have been working collaboratively with OCR to provide timely and responsive information about our policies, procedures, and practices. Last month, OCR began the process of visiting our campus to hear from interested students, faculty and staff regarding their experiences and perspective regarding Baylor's efforts to prevent and address sex- and gender-based harassment and violence. OCR will be on campus again next week to continue this stage of the process. We encourage interested community members to take advantage of this opportunity.
