Mission StatementThe Baylor Alumni Association operates on one basic principle—once a Bear, always a Bear. We help Baylor alumni stay in touch through a variety of programs and services. You can find out what your friends are up to through the Class Notes section of the Baylor Line, the alumni association's award-winning magazine. Or stay in touch with professors and friends, both on and off campus, through Between the Lines, the association's monthly e-mail newsletter.
The alumni association helps young and old graduates stay in touch, from reaching out to graduating seniors to sponsoring Heritage Club, a three-day spring event for graduates from fifty years ago or more. If you would like to honor a deserving friend or colleague, the alumni association has a variety of special awards, from Outstanding Young Alumni to Retired Faculty and Administrators. In short, we will help you stay connected with Baylor University and with each other.
The offices of the Baylor Alumni Association are located in the Hughes-Dillard Alumni Center. The building was dedicated on November 6, 1998, and houses the Kronzer Great Hall; the Abner McCall Retired Faculty Reading Room; the Baylor Line office suite, dedicated to Waco sportswriter Dave Campbell; and a lunch room named for Judge Bill Logue.
The purpose of the Baylor Alumni Association, as stated in the organization's Constitution and Bylaws, is the following:
"The purpose of the Association is to provide the support of benevolent, charitable, and educational undertakings by extending financial and other aid to Baylor University and to students thereof, by generally encouraging sentiments favorable to education and by promoting union of and good fellowship among former students and friends of Baylor University; to coordinate all alumni activities; to serve the general alumni organization of Baylor University; and to maintain the administrative agency and executive personnel needed to provide for a continuity of alumni activity, interest and financial support of Baylor University."
