About Us

The mission of the Department of Multicultural Affairs is to enrich the holistic development of each student by encouraging them to celebrate their personal heritage and embrace the cultures of others.

Partially housed in Student Activities, the Department of Multicultural Affairs uses this strategic placement to create a unique departmental collaboration. This supportive relationship was created in the Fall of 2005 with the intention to maximize opportunities for student involvement and development, to foster communication and to develop avenues to address students' needs.

Baylor University recognizes the changing demographics of our nation and how those changes will directly affect our University's community. Therefore, Baylor is committed to a policy of inclusiveness, understanding and acceptance of all regardless of race or ethnicity. Consistent with the statement, Baylor will challenge and educate all members of the University community through cultural awareness programs and by precept and example.

Baylor University is home to students from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and approximately 85 other countries. As a leader in international education and the world's largest Baptist university, Baylor makes it a priority to recognize and encourage all students regardless of race or ethnicity. We seek to enable and inspire students to learn about differing cultural and social backgrounds that are present among their fellow students and in the local community.
