Board of Regents 2020-2021

The Board of Regents is the official governing body of Baylor University. Voting regents are selected by election, with 75% of the membership elected by the Regents themselves and up to 25% elected through a process with the Baptist General Convention of Texas. In addition, beginning in 2016, three additional Regents joined the Board as "Alumni-Elected Regents." Regents serve a three-year term, and may serve up to three terms consecutively before they must rotate off the Board for at least one year.
