About Us

The Institute for Faith and Learning was founded in 1997 to assist Baylor in achieving its mission of integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment, and its goal of becoming a university of the first rank committed to its Baptist and Christian heritage. Since its founding, the Institute has developed several major programs in support of this mission, cultivating high-quality research, sponsoring conferences, mentoring students, and encouraging teaching faithful to the Christian intellectual tradition.

Baylor Symposium
on Faith and Culture
Each year, the Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture addresses significant issues from the vantage point of Christian intellectual traditions. It thereby embodies Baylor University's aspiration to cultivate reflective engagement with the world of public ideas and issues, especially in a way that acknowledges the relevance of Christian questions, convictions, and contributions. Featuring leading national and international scholars-and including a wide range of participants from varied denominational, private, and public universities-the symposium is convened annually by Baylor's Institute for Faith and Learning.

Dear Friends,

It is quiet on campus as I write these words. Our students are already home. 2020, a year we long will remember, is ending. Advent is here, and Christmas is coming.
