Faculty and Program Support

At the heart of Baylor’s mission and vision is the enterprise of changing lives -- those of our students, who experience a transformational education, as well as those of the innumerable individuals and groups around the world whom our graduates serve through their professions and unique call to servant leadership.

Establishing program support and endowed faculty chairs and professorships are critical components of our ongoing pursuit of academic excellence. Endowed chairs and professorships significantly enhance the University’s abilities to recruit and retain leading faculty who seek to enliven our rich tradition of outstanding teaching and scholarship. Support in this area of focus, allows academic leadership to continue progress in areas such as:

  • Building on our rich tradition of outstanding teaching, scholarship and service.
  • Developing new programs that strategically build on existing strengths within departments and schools and increasing graduate-level production in all areas with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math.
  • Leading initiatives in which we offer our distinctive knowledge, resources and capabilities to address systemic problems in our community and throughout the world.

To learn about immediate needs identified by our schools and colleges or needs in an area of you academic interest, please visit Academic Units. To discuss how a transformational gift could endow ongoing support for an area of academic need, please contact us.

I credit the excellent education I received at Baylor for allowing me to continue with graduate studies, and eventually find a career in my chosen profession…
