Center for Global Engagement
Bringing the World to Baylor. Sending Baylor to the World.
The Center for Global Engagement seeks to coordinate and facilitate the efforts of individuals and groups throughout the campus to transform the world through international travel, research, and study, through the development of greater cultural competency and understanding, and through support for an increasingly diverse campus community.
Explore the world and gain invaluable opportunities to grow professionally and personally by immersing in different world cultures.
The International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) Office provides guidance and support to those at Baylor who have an F-1 visa or J-1 visa, helping them with their initial transition to Baylor and their connection to the Baylor experience.
Global Baylor recognizes that students who are both academically and cross-culturally prepared should be able to adapt and succeed in a diverse and multicultural world.
Our program provides a pathway for students who are fully qualified to enter Baylor University undergraduate programs but still need to improve their English.
For globally-minded students who want a non-traditional start to their freshman college experience, the Baylor Global Scholars program is a unique four-year educational and professional development opportunity.

Applications for study abroad programs are currently open for the summer and fall terms of 2022. Study abroad director Bo White, Ed.D., suggested that students start preparing early in the year. In the long run, he said it is more beneficial for students to get on these tasks, given they will have more options and availability for their intended courses.
