Why I Came To Baylor:
"I came to Baylor because I wanted to be at a university that takes both teaching and research seriously and also promotes scholarship from a Christian perspective. With its J.M. Dawson Institute of Church-State Studies I have the resources I need to be a productive scholar and to train graduate students in both history and church-state studies."
