David E. Garland

Distinguished Achievement Award

David Garland has served Baylor University with faith, hope and love, stepping in to lead Baylor in a variety of capacities — as dean, interim provost and twice as interim president. He demonstrates a rare depth of expertise in both academic and congregational life, skillfully balancing measured wisdom and peace with unquestioned love for Baylor and true servant leadership. Garland is a respected New Testament scholar and pastor. This summer, the Baylor Board of Regents honored Garland for his service to the University by establishing the David E. Garland Scholarship Fund, a $5 million resource that will assist Truett Seminary students.
