Missions & Public Life
Missions and Public Life strives to shape Baylor's faithful engagement with Waco and the world. We prepare men and women for worldwide leadership and service with a goal to make a better world...together.
To do so, we provide transformational opportunities for students to love their neighbors by cultivating self-discovery, deepening human connection, developing a healthy worldview, and equipping servant-leaders.
Grow, love, and serve while immersing yourself in different cultures, and integrating your faith, service, and learning in more than 20 locations worldwide.
