Faith and Film
The 2015 Baylor Symposium on Faith Culture will explore The Spirit of Sports.
As part of its contribution to Baylor University and the larger academic community, the Institute for Faith and Learning plans and directs a variety of conferences. Though oriented toward different audiences, these conferences feature Christian intellectual life as relevant to significant questions in academe and the wider culture.
The Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture seeks to address any significant person, problem, text, or question, and to do so in a way that constructively appropriates Christian faith and intellect in relation to the selected topic.
The Baylor Medical Ethics Banquet seeks to provide a forum for physicians and other health care professionals to come together in conversation about the ways in which shared Christian faith might speak to the contemporary ethical challenges in the practice of medicine.
Past Conference Series
Over the years, IFL has been honored to support several other major conference series, including: the Pruit Memorial Symposium, an endowed series bringing the perspectives of Christian intellectual traditions to bear on issues of enduring, contemporary, and interdisciplinary concern; and Art & Soul, a conference series in the arts and humanities that explored the intersection of religion and the arts through performance, exhibition, informal dialogues, and scholarly inquiry.

Finally, the Institute occasionally sponsors or provides administrative support for other conferences that do not fall within an ongoing series.
