Steppin' In Challenge Participation 2020

Steppin' In 2020

On April 18th, the entire Baylor family will participate in various "Serve Where You Are" initiatives around the country.  Those who take the Steppin' In Challenge will participate individually or as a family in at-home service activities to positively impact their neighbors and greater community.  

In response to the call in 1 Peter that we, as faithful stewards of God's grace, use our gifts to serve others we believe that Baylor students, employees, and alumni around the world have special gifts and encouragement to offer their communities at this time.  By rallying together to serve others on this special day, our hope is that a commitment to caring for one another would be sustained as we continue to face this new season as a strong Baylor Family.

If participating in this challenge, adhere to all Shelter in Place orders, observe local and CDC COVID-19 guidelines, and practice social/physical distancing.  We also ask that you refrain from baking/cooking and delivering food (use a food delivery service instead).

How to Participate


Steppin' In is designed to be an accessible opportunity for everyone! In fact, the entire Baylor family from students, to alumni, to employees, to friends, is encouraged to participate!  Get started by looking through the list of projects below.  Click the "sign up" link to indicate your interest in getting involved and please share all activity in photos and videos tagged with #BUSteppinIn or email photos ( on that day so that we can follow along with you!
