Latinas Unidas is a community support program for women of all Latin American backgrounds. In our meetings, we come together in an environment that promotes empowerment, self-improvement, cultural awareness, fellowship, and mentorship. Latinas Unidas provides safety, supportive relationships, and community involvement to effectively impact student’s overall well-being. Our goal is to help our students find a sense of belonging in the Baylor community, initiate reflection and discussion, and promote academic success, professional growth and leadership development through mentorship with Latina staff/faculty members.

VETS (Veteran Educational and Transition Services) is on a mission to promote the academic success of veterans at Baylor University. All Baylor students who are veterans are eligible for the free benefits offered through the VETS Program.
We understand that though veterans may have shared a common military culture, each student's experience is unique. Therefore, we have sought to partner with a range of departments and their corresponding resources in order to ensure that support is provided to the specific and unique challenges that our veterans face. Also, we recognize that our student veterans have a lot to contribute to the Baylor community. Our veterans bring developed leadership skills, discipline, global perspectives and tested hearts for service, just to name a few. VETS aims to support Baylor's veterans as they enrichen our Baylor community through sharing their insight and gifts within the classroom, campus and community. Veterans have served our nation, so now is the time to serve these students to ensure a successful transition from "salutes to sic 'ems!"

Baylor University's "My Sister, MySelf" is a unique series of monthly meetings dedicated to addressing contemporary issues facing Black Women and Women of Color. Our goal is to share information on ways in which we can improve ourselves individually and collectively in the community, home, and professional world.
We desire to create a comfortable environment where in-depth discussion can encourage self-improvement, community and cultural awareness and global thinking. Most importantly, My Sister, Myself seeks to facilitate a casual space where participants can be encouraged and refreshed through fellowship.
