Baylor University Statement on 9/11 Display of American Flags

Sept. 11, 2020

Baylor University fully supports the 9/11 display of American flags depicting the thousands of lives lost as a result of the attacks that took place 19 years ago. This moving display by the Young Conservatives of Texas at Baylor in support of our country is the only official student event that has been allowed on the University’s campus since the start of the fall semester. Out of reverence for the exhibit of flags and in knowing that its moving symbolism could evoke a wide range of emotions, signage was placed near the display notifying those who passed by of its potential impact. This is a standard part of our process regarding outdoor displays which we implemented last year based on feedback from our campus community. We regret that the signage we used has taken away from the intent of the display and apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused.
