In May, 2014, the Baylor University Board of Regents adopted a broad-ranging array of Five-Year Goals for 2014-2018. Constructed around the five high-level Aspirational Statements that represent due north for the University's future course, these Five-Year Goals are a natural outgrowth of the University's continuing implementation of Pro Futuris. With a clear understanding of the desired destination, the University leadership spent months considering the essential steps that must be taken to realize our ambitious vision. That process of collaboration resulted in the creation of a set of highly specific Institutional Acts of Determination reflected in the form of Five-Year Goals.
Developed by Baylor's executive administration during six months of collaborative work across campus, Baylor University's Five-Year Goals reflect high-level, measurable objectives against which future progress can be clearly assessed in the years ahead.
Illuminate, Baylor University’s Academic Strategic Plan, has one overarching goal: To bring light to the world as we accelerate our quest toward preeminence as a Christian research university, building on Baylor’s historic strengths and strategically investing in new areas of research and service.
