The Institute for Faith and Learning was founded in 1997 to assist Baylor in achieving its mission of integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment, and its goal of becoming a university of the first rank committed to its Baptist and Christian heritage. Since its founding, the Institute has developed several major programs in support of this mission, cultivating high-quality research, sponsoring conferences, mentoring students, and encouraging teaching faithful to the Christian intellectual tradition.

The Institute for Faith and Learning gives attention to Christian intellectual resources valuable for the work of scholars, teachers, and students in the church-related academy and beyond. Some of our initiatives encourage reflection on the academic life as a Christian vocation, while others lend support to research projects inspired by a theologically shaped outlook. Still others create forums for the sort of interdisciplinary inquiry that hyper-specialized academic guilds generally overlook or undervalue.

Whether you are a professor, student, or someone concerned with the relationship between reason and faith, the Institute for Faith and Learning offers numerous activities designed to foster thoughtful Christian scholarship, teaching, and understanding. We invite you to explore these activities further:
