Baylor President and Chancellor Ken Starr welcomed former U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf to the Baylor Club at McLane Stadium for On Topic, a conversation highlighting the significant issues of freedom of conscience and worship.
Former U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, who represented Virginia's 10th District in Congress for 17 terms, was named the Jerry and Susie Wilson Chair in Religious Freedom at Baylor University on January 19, 2015. Recognized as the "conscience" of the Congress, Wolf is leading Baylor's efforts on Capitol Hill to address the significant issues of freedom of conscience and worship. Wolf is the author of the International Religious Freedom Act, which infused America's first freedom - religious freedom - into U.S. foreign policy by creating the International Religious Freedom Office at the State Department. Wolf also founded and served as co-chairman of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, a bipartisan organization made up of nearly 200 members of Congress who work together to raise awareness about international human rights issues.
