Core Diversity and Inclusion

The core curriculum is a significant piece of one of the University’s pillars—undergraduate transformational education—and it is the College of Arts & Sciences’ goal to offer the best general education in America. The unified core curriculum, which was implemented in fall 2019, gives us the chance to reach that goal. Diversity & multicultural requirements are central to this objective.
The unified A&S core curriculum includes diversity & multicultural requirements within various elements of the core; each common course, and five of the nine distribution lists, include explicit diversity requirements and expectations as part of their approved course objectives, as can be seen below.

Baylor's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

As a leading Christian institution with a strong Baptist identity and heritage that embraces both its global and Texan roots, Baylor University seeks to "educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community." In line with this mission, we seek to embody Christ's teachings of love and inclusivity across boundaries of racial, ethnic, gender, socio-economic, religious, and other expressions of human difference. Because, at Baylor, "Love thy neighbor" are not just words, …they are a way of life.
