The gifts of generous alumni and friends—both small and large—have been the building blocks of our success. Against this backdrop, we have great expectations for the future. We hold firm to our roots of Christian commitment and academic excellence with eyes toward even greater achievement. Pro Ecclesia. Pro Texana. Pro Futuris.
As a Christian university committed to scholarship of the highest quality, Baylor offers a distinctive voice to global conversations about crucial issues. The University already has embraced the charge—making strides toward the five-year goals developed to support Pro Futuris, our strategic vision launched in May of 2012—and continues to press on toward achievement in each area.
The momentum of the past few years has launched Baylor University into the national and global spotlight, from athletics to academics, from research to expertise. And together, with the involvement and support of Baylor alumni and friends, we will continue to strengthen the Baylor experience.
More than 27,880 alumni and friends took steps to champion the area of their passion in fiscal year 2014, providing more than $113 million toward enriching the Baylor experience. 8,925 of those faithful supporters gave to Baylor for the very first time. As Baylor continues implementing the ambitious five-year goals supporting Pro Futuris, every member of Baylor Nation can help fortify the University for future generations.
