Critical resources are needed to support facilities and infrastructure for growth in research and programs that contribute solutions to problems facing an ever-changing world and prepare graduates as leaders in their fields.
Inviting spaces that welcome prospective students, visitors, and alumni to engage in campus life offer a rich and vital connection to the University. Additionally, facilities offer spaces that enrich the lives of our students, support the work of our faculty, enhance the infrastructure of our athletics programs, and support the transformational education that takes place on our campus. The spaces in which students live and learn play a critical role in their preparation to contribute as leaders and servants in our world. In science and engineering, graduates are expected to have hands-on experience with the latest tools and technologies in their fields; students of the arts, theater, and music must have a range of spaces that accommodate individual, small-group, and largescale performance needs. The classrooms, living, and collaboration spaces of tomorrow's students must be a priority today.
As part of the Give Light Campaign, the University set a goal of raising $300 million in capital support. Gifts to the Give Light Capital Fund will go to support facilities across campus. Naming level gifts to the Give Light Capital Fund will be celebrated through public recognition on campus. Facilities where some of the gifts will be recognized include the newly renovated Tidwell Bible Building, the Mark and Paula Hurd Welcome Center, the Baylor Basketball Pavilion and others.
