A Preeminent Christian Research University
Baylor University’s vision affirms that the world needs a preeminent research university that is unambiguously Christian. In 2021, Baylor was recognized as an R1 research institution, a significant benchmark in the University's continued focus and investment in research at the highest levels. Through top-tier research and scholarship, R1 universities bring their voice to bear in addressing our world’s most meaningful challenges. As Baylor achieves preeminence as a Christian research university, it enables researchers from throughout the University to infuse the quest for solutions, at the highest levels, with Baylor’s distinct voice and mission.
