President's Diversity Statement
When Baylor University was chartered by the Republic of Texas in 1845, Baptist minister William M. Tryon suggested that the University be prepared to serve generations of students for "all ages to come." As a University committed to our Christian faith-and maintaining our Baptist heritage-we believe that all truth is open to inquiry. As such, Baylor has a strengthened commitment to diversity-to exploring unique perspectives, seeking the unfamiliar, and loving our brothers and sisters of different heritages and experiences. By diversifying the breadth of knowledge and enlarging the cultural horizons encountered at Baylor University, our mission of preparing future generations for worldwide leadership is being fulfilled.
