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.
Numerous milestones from the last year include:
- The Global Flourishing Study, at $43.4 million, became the largest funded research project in Baylor history.
- Baylor University met and exceeded the Give Light philanthropic campaign’s $1.1 billion goal, providing significant funding for research including more than 20 endowed chair positions.
- The Postdoctoral Scholars Program more than doubled the number of postdoctoral researchers on campus.
Countless members of the Baylor Family— faculty, research staff, administrators, donors and more— advanced the Baylor mission through their efforts and generosity, supporting the vision and fueling Baylor’s pursuit of preeminence as a Christian research university.
