About SOE

Preparing Leaders, Impacting the World, Shaping the Future

These are more than words for the Baylor School of Education. We believe graduates of our programs are the leaders of tomorrow – in the classrooms, on the fields, in hospitals and clinics, and in many other areas.

Faculty, staff and students model a sense of responsibility to impact the world – locally through community service initiatives, including literacy and community health programs, and globally through study- and service-abroad opportunities.

Our graduates shape the future of our public and private school classrooms. They are tomorrow’s principals and superintendents. They are future doctors, trainers for our athletes, medical support professionals, and public health advocates.
