Division of Student Life Fundraising Priorities

Fundraising Priorities

In order to enhance our ability to shape students' lives, the Division of Student Life is seeking donors to help fund division-wide priorities in the following areas: supporting the Student Life Excellence Fund; expanding student mental and physical health services; increasing student participation in life-changing mission experiences; strengthening cross-cultural experiences; and enhancing student involvement in Baylor University traditions and spirit-related programs, leadership development opportunities, and community service experiences.

Expand Student Mental and Physical Health Services

Funds are needed to renovate and expand existing facilities in order to meet the ever-increasing psychological, medical, and health and fitness needs of students. From onetime funding for outreach programs to pledges of ongoing support for renovation and expansion, your assistance in expanding our current services to students is needed now more than ever.
Specific Areas of Need

  • Addiction Recovery Services and Staffing
  • Health Promotion and Wellness Education Programs
  • Health Center Renovations

Increase Student Participation in Life-Changing University Mission Experiences

Currently, 500 students participate annually in Spiritual Life sponsored mission trips. These trips typically cost $3800, and even with a strong individual fundraising effort, are cost prohibitive for a number of students who desire to go. The goal is to have at least 1000 students participate each year in these life-changing experiences. To do so will require additional funds to be raised in order to offset the cost each student must bear.
Specific Areas of Need

  • BU Missions Endowment

Strengthen Cross-Cultural Experiences

Enhance Student Involvement in Baylor Traditions and Spirit, Leadership Development, and Community Service

From the classroom to the boardroom, the church house to the White House, to all places in between, our mission is to educate leaders and servants who will go forth and help heal a hurting world. To do so will require not just learning about but also engaging in leadership and service while here at Baylor. With your financial support, we can expand the number of students who participate in Baylor Line Camp, enhance our living and learning communities, strengthen advising for student organizations, increase leadership development and community service programs, and make it possible for more students to become involved in meaningful out-of-class experiences through scholarships and financial awards.
