Response to Harvey

Response to Harvey

"Our hearts are heavy at the devastation along the Texas coast and in Houston and southeast Texas from Hurricane Harvey. Our deepest prayers are with the families and communities who have experienced loss, and we pray that in the coming days they will be filled with hope, reassurance and restoration. We encourage our Baylor Family to stay safe and join together in prayer for God's comfort, mercy and protection for those impacted by this devastating storm." ~ Dr. Linda A. Livingstone, Baylor University President

It is anticipated that a number of Baylor offices and organizations will be involved in responding to the severe weather associated with Hurricane Harvey. This web site will be used to communicate information about those activities and responses.
