HRC Community Covenant
We, the members of the Honors Residential College, seek to be formed as whole persons by our Baylor education. To this end, we commit ourselves to being a community of faith seeking understanding. As a community, we devote ourselves to sharing life together, making "every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification" (Romans 14:19). As a community of faith, we devote ourselves to the love of God and of neighbor (Matthew 22:38-39), renewing our minds and training our affections through daily prayer and shared acts of service. As a community of faith seeking understanding we devote ourselves to the pursuit of wisdom (Proverbs 3:13-18), seeking a unified understanding of all that we learn so that we may use our gifts for the benefit of all.
Members of the HRC are expected to:
- Participate in a Community-Wide Conversation. Each academic year, the Faculty Steward facilitates a focused common intellectual conversation called the HRC Formation Series aimed at discovering what it means to be formed as a whole person by a Baylor education.
- Devote Themselves to Prayer and Service. As a Christian community, HRC members should be in regular prayer and service. The HRC offers morning and evening prayer and many opportunities to serve the HRC, Baylor, and the Waco area.
- Live Life Together. Each member should devote themselves to actively participating in the life of the community. Each member is a part of a smaller hall community, which will be the focal point of their HRC experience.
