Participation in student organizations and campus committees builds leadership skills, develops soft skills and provides students a voice in shaping College policies and programs.
Student Societies and Organizations
Ranging from cultural focus to career plans, sports and arts, students have formed groups to bring together individuals with shared interests.
While some of these orgs are sponsored by SOM Senate and Graduate Student Council, those listed on the College-wide page are open to all BCM students.
Many Baylor committees (Baylor login required) offer opportunities for students to help shape College policies, services and initiatives. These include the Institutional Policy Committee and the Inclusion and Excellence Council.
Members of the Student Services committee serve as liaisons between College leadership and their peers to help ensure that resources and initiatives are meeting the needs of the students they are designed to support.
Student members of the Alumni Student Ambassador Board lead networking programs with alumni and act as liaisons to the Office of Alumni Relations in order to serve the student body.
If you are interested in participating in either College-wide or program-based committees, speak with the dean of your school or contact the Office of Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
