Program Statement

The Baylor program is designed to educate scholars and scholar-practitioners who desire to have meaningful, lasting influence on higher education. Our program is uniquely balanced between research, academic rigor, and hands-on professional experience. Students entering our program can expect to be professionally challenged through their apprenticeships and academically challenged throughout the course sequence. Our program is small and built on the idea that a great doctoral education stems from great mentorship. Our program provides support, camaraderie, and debate as students come together from across the nation, representing a great diversity of regional and cultural worldviews. Students selected to attend Baylor's program are provided a complete tuition scholarship and a graduate apprentice position with a competitive stipend.

Higher education needs leaders who are thoughtful, reflective, and capable of leading forward through scholarship and practice. We hope you will join us in that quest.
