Yes, they are. Diversity is generally encouraged from what I understand and have seen from visiting.
Baylor students are racially accepting and friend groups are racially mixed. I don't think you will just hangout with Asian students. The campus is very culturally diverse so you can find many racial groups to hang out with.

Baylor is not known for its religious or racial diversity. That’s not to say there isn’t any, but what is there is definitely limited. This can be a huge drawback if you come here looking for a lot of diversity, political activism, or differences in opinion on political issues. While the “Christian agenda” isn't always evident, it will become quite apparent as soon as you're pushing an idea that goes against Baptist ideology.
It’s easy to find a niche here. Within a year, you’ll recognize about half the campus. Within three, you’ve pretty much got the whole place nailed down, even if it’s only knowing the faces. Baylor has the “two degrees of separation.” Everyone knows everyone, even if they don’t know that they know them. When the diversity is really low on campus, at least you get predictability. The biggest problem in asking about diversity on a non-diversified campus is that you’ll get some skewed opinions, because seventy-five percent of the people you’re asking are white middle class citizens. Generally though, everyone recognizes that there is very little diversity. Fortunately, most people here are incredibly giving and welcoming in spite of religious and racial differences, and there is an abundance of clubs and organizations on campus to gladly accept new members. All bets are off, however, when it comes to homosexuality and members of other sexual minorities. There is still a level of discrimination against them at Baylor.
