Baylor's Office of Media & Public Relations supports the University’s Illuminate strategic plan as a top Christian research university by focusing on faculty research and expertise, innovative teaching, major awards and recognition, and community involvement.

Our team provides fall and spring Media Training workshops to assist faculty with effectively communicating the impact of their research and sharing their perspective as subject-matter experts on national trends and conversations with media outlets, in Hot Topics and on the Baylor Connections podcast. Also, as official spokespersons, we respond promptly and accurately to issues and events.

Contact our staff directly or reach out to our main office at 254-710-1961 or
