Dr. Darin Davis is Baylor’s Vice President for University Mission, Director for the Institute for Faith and Learning, and faculty member in the Honors Program. He shares how Baylor intentionally seeks to live out its mission and affirm its Christian identity in this post to parents.
From its founding in Independence, Texas, more than 170 years ago, Baylor University has resolutely affirmed its Christian identity and mission. Our motto “Pro Ecclesia, Pro Texana” expresses our commitment to God and others, and it inspires Baylor’s teaching, research, athletic programs, student life, and much more. Baylor is a special place. Our Christian faith animates who we are and what we do.
