In June 2016, Baylor welcomed the first Alumni-elected Regents to service on the Board. Alumni-elected Regents serve 3-year terms; however, the 2016 appointees were installed with 1-, 2- and 3-year terms to allow the election process to commence. The process outlined on this site governs the annual nomination, review, and selection of alumni-elected Regents. As Alumni-elected Regents complete their terms, the graduates of Baylor University will elect or re-elect Alumni-elected Regents to service.
Graduates of Baylor University are invited to nominate and vote for Alumni-elected Regents.
Official rules and procedures govern the process for nominations and elections of Alumni-elected Regents.
Since its founding in 1845, Baylor has been governed by a board of regents or trustees who maintain legal authority for the well-being of the University. The men and women who serve Baylor as Regents safeguard the mission and heritage of the institution, provide strategic direction for the institution, collaborate with University leadership and faculty, and assess resources needed to accomplish goals and support the University mission.
