In accepting the 2011 Heisman Trophy, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III told the world, “Baylor we are, and Baylor we will always be. But it’s up to us to define what that means.”
So what is Baylor? As we conclude one long-term plan (Baylor 2012) and begin another new strategic plan, this is a good time to celebrate who and what we are. Sure, we know the usual descriptors — the largest Baptist university in the world, the oldest continuously operating university in Texas, etc. — but Baylor is so much more than that, as the video below explores.
Baylor. We are … Students of faith. A caring community. Discovering new truths. World leaders. Passionate teachers. Winning with integrity. A family. The list could go on and on, and over the next few months, we’ll from time to time use this space to highlight many such characteristics that make Baylor Baylor.
Sic ’em, Bears!
