In order to better understand and respond to the unique problems of our age, Baylor University hosts monthly events in the nation’s capitol.

As part of the Robert P. George Initiative on Faith, Ethics & Public Policy, Baylor in Washington holds regular events in Washington, D.C. featuring Dr. George in coversation with world-renowned religious and thought leaders on pressing contemporary issues and historical reflections.

Other events have centered on law and cyber-security, hunger, poverty, homelessness, and the tragic loss of life among immigrants along the Texas border. We have also featured the work of Baylor faculty in preservation and cultivation of cultural memory: the Black Gospel Music collection in the new Smithsonian Museum of African-American History and Culture; Seamus Heaney and the Northern Irish Conflict; and the preservation and publication of ancient Jewish and Christian theological manuscripts.
