What Does Achieving R1 Mean for Baylor's Future?
Earning Research 1 status, the highest designation, from the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education means more Baylor students will have opportunities to work alongside faculty to prepare for their callings, more faculty will attract grants and industry funding to find new knowledge and solutions to big problems, and that a Baylor degree is more valuable than ever. R1 status shows that top-tier research and Christian faith do, in fact, go together. As a Christian research university, Baylor infuses the quest for solutions, at the highest levels, with the University’s distinct Christian mission. Your gift today creates life-changing opportunities for students to benefit from Baylor’s rich academic experience.
