The Research Project, Week Forty Three, Texas

Many of our nation’s elite private universities were started by the only educated people in the community, the clergy, and the denominations that they were members of. But eventually most of these universities became independent of the Christian denominations that founded them.

That is not the case with Baylor University in Waco, Texas, the oldest continually operating university in the state. Baylor still maintains its Baptist roots and is a nationally ranked research university. Here is a sampling of the wide variety of research going on at Baylor.
