Women in the Academy

The Women in the Academy Program (WITA) is a collaborative effort led by the Baylor Graduate School and Baylor’s Women Faculty Colloquium to support women graduate students and faculty throughout their journey in the academy.

Women in the Academy features two primary components: the Women in the Academy Conference and the Women in the Academy Mentorship Program. Explore the links below to learn more about the bi-annual conference and our mentorship program.
