About Us

Our Mission

In keeping with Baylor’s Christian mission to educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service, the Office of Community Engagement and Service (CES) provides the campus-wide infrastructure for coordinating, supporting, and advancing informed community engagement with the intention of leveraging the university’s collective influence toward promoting positive social change.


In our commitment to Christ and the work with each other as well as with the community at large, we will be

  • Empowering in all that we do, we seek to build capacity and to foster human capability
  • Purposeful as we work with the goal of having a positive impact. We look for ways to assess that impact and to improve our efforts.
  • Caring and focus on compassion, responsibility, and stewardship.
  • Collaborative as we build trust and effective working relationships internally and externally through listening and cooperation.
