It's not just rhetoric. It's a commitment.

As defined by Pro Futuris, Baylor’s strategic vision, the University is committed to transformational education, where students are prepared for service in a diverse and interconnected global society.

Here’s just a small sample of the ways Baylor graduate students work to impact our global society:

  • Students in the Master of Public Health program work in medical clinics during the summer with the Baylor in Brazil program.
  • Master of Social Work students travel to Kenya to work and minister to communities
  • Graduate students are tilling soil in the Baylor Community Garden and donating produce to the Campus Kitchen, an organization committed to reaching hungry and hurting in nearby neighborhoods

Service opportunities vary from discipline to discipline and program to program.

Your field of study – whether it’s teaching children, working as a biomedical engineer, or composing music – will be ripe with ways you can make positive contributions to your community and the world.
