Through the Champions of Change recognition program, the University seeks to honor, recognize, and celebrate unsung heroes of Baylor’s past and present.
The Champions of Change program recognizes and acknowledges the accomplishments of individuals that have demonstrated efforts to foster greater appreciation and advancement of diversity, inclusiveness, and equity for communities of color at Baylor and in Waco. By recognizing these leaders, the program will cement their legacy among other Baylor greats, firsts, and champions. Each year, a diverse and representative volunteer committee will seek nominations for a faculty, staff, and alum from Baylor’s past and/or present who embodies the ideals of equity, change, hope, and service.
