Faculty Diversity and Belonging
Baylor University has a strong commitment to faculty diversity and belonging. The Baylor community is fully committed to nurturing an environment for knowing, being, and doing across campus where people of all backgrounds can come together - because we know that together we are stronger.
The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education is a research-practice partnership and network of peer institutions dedicated to improving outcomes in faculty recruitment, development, and retention. Under COACHE, more than 300 colleges, universities, and state systems have strengthened their capacity to identify the drivers of faculty success and implement informed changes.
An Employee Resource Group serves as a resource for members and the University by fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with the institutional mission, vision, goals, business practices, and objectives. In other words, it’s a group of faculty and staff with a common purpose coming together to provide opportunities to connect with and support each other.
