In 1977, Baylor became one of the first universities in the nation to create a Center for Entrepreneurship. It quickly became the focal point for entrepreneurial development at Baylor, developing new curriculum, conducting research and acquiring additional resources. A milestone was reached in 1988, when the Center was endowed by the Baugh family, and was henceforth named the John F. Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship.
In 2013, the Baugh Center’s role expanded to include a focus on conducting and disseminating free enterprise research with the objective of becoming a national leader on issues at the intersection of entrepreneurship and public policy. In recognition of this change, its name changed to the John F. Baugh Center for Entrepreneurship and Free Enterprise.
