Our hearts and prayers are united with our nation and Las Vegas in mourning.

"Hundreds of our fellow citizens are now mourning the loss of a loved one," President Trump said at a press conference. "We cannot fathom their pain. We cannot imagine their loss. To the families of the victims, we are praying for you, and we are here for you."

“Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and body with grief” (Psalm 31:9, NIV). My heart is broken, my mind exhausted. I cry out to you and hardly know what to ask. All I can do is tell you how I feel and ask you to “keep track of all my sorrows. Collect all my tears in your bottle and record each one in your book” as I pour them out to you (Psalm 56:8, NLT). Amen.

Though this volunteer board brings to their service to Baylor a variety of backgrounds, interests and areas of expertise, Regents share a single goal: the continued advancement and support of an academically strong and Christ-centered Baylor University.

In June 2016, Baylor University welcomed the first alumni-elected Regents to service on the Board of Regents. Alumni-elected Regents serve three-year terms. However, the 2016 appointees were installed with one-, two- and three-year terms to allow the election process to commence. As Alumni-elected Regents complete their terms, the graduates of Baylor University will elect or re-elect Alumni-elected Regents.

In the 2017-18 election cycle, nominees will be accepted for two Alumni-elected Regent seats. Six candidates will be selected from the nominees. The two candidates with the largest number of alumni votes will be selected as Alumni-elected Regents.
