Introduction from Vice Provost for Research Kevin Chambliss, Ph.D.
This is an incredible time to be at Baylor University. More than ever before, we are aligned behind the same objective -- pursuing our distinct goal of preeminence as a Christian research university.
Becoming a Preeminent Christian Research University
For more than two decades, Baylor University has strategically grown its research enterprise, driven by the vision of preeminence as a Christian research university.
The past year has heralded much to celebrate at Baylor University. Well before Baylor achieved R1 recognition, Baylor faculty met and exceeded stretch institutional goals to advance significant research that addresses key societal challenges.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research assists the Provost in setting annual goals and stretch goals for research activities. These goals include benchmarks for the number of proposal submissions, research award dollars, and externally funded research expenditures.
Institutional Investment in Research
Baylor’s ambitious research vision requires significant investment in infrastructure.
What’s next for Baylor research? After achieving R1 designation, the University is committed to building on the successes of Illuminate to further support research marked by quality, visibility and impact—a goal for which there is no finish line.
