Office of Advancement Ensuring a Bright Future

Baylor University greatly values the alumni, parents and friends who support and sustain us. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve both the University and our Baylor Family as we work together to advance the mission of this institution.

The Office of Advancement’s purpose is to provide opportunities for our Baylor Family to support and engage with Baylor, both through giving to the University and in connecting with their alma mater through our Baylor Alumni program.

Together, we can create opportunities for our students, connect to fellow alumni and parents and find opportunities to engage with corporate partners and foundations to help advance our society. As you explore how University Advancement is working to make Baylor’s future bright through Baylor Alumni and the Give Light Campaign, I hope you will consider how you can engage and give to be part of these exciting times at Baylor!

Sic'Em Bears,
