At the heart of Baylor's mission is a commitment to prepare men and women for careers of worldwide leadership and service. As we look to the future, we must not be satisfied by simply preparing our students for a world of "cutting-edge technology," we must immerse them in an environment that is "cutting edge." We must maintain the close faculty-student relationships and mentoring for which Baylor is known, while expanding our scope of scholarly activity, innovation and creativity.
Baylor's Pro Futuris serves as a compass for our future, providing direction without dictating specific actions -- pointing us toward our destination while inviting creativity in determining the paths by which we will arrive. It follows on the heels of the very successful Baylor 2012 vision which ushered in unprecedented growth and development at Baylor impacting every area of university life.
