Christian Commitment

At Baylor, we celebrate our distinctive place in higher education - where research, scholarship and faith guide the mind in understanding the complex diversity of God's creation and prepare the whole person for service and leadership.

Baylor continues to hold firm to the conviction that the world needs a preeminent research university that is unambiguously Christian, where such a commitment does not imply a lack of scholarly inquiry, but rather requires scholarship and creative endeavors at the highest levels of quality to complement and inform its teaching and service.


Our student body comes from 50 states and more than 85 countries, and that diversity means a variety of background, cultures and beliefs. Students encounter a variety of beliefs on campus, and they are encouraged to broaden their understanding of the rich cultural diversity found throughout the world and reflected in the Baylor family.
