Bull's-eye

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 20, 2003

Rod Dreher has a column in the Dallas Morning News which is a fuller discussion of the topic of his NRO post mentioned below. It includes this incisive remark by Baylor University president Robert Sloan:

"If you're not intentional about your identity, you can't maintain it. I've never seen a school slide into Christian orthodoxy."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    President Robert Sloan's attempt to make Baylor a university where faith and learning are genuinely integrated is one of most interesting stories in education these days, but very few outside Texas Baptist circles have noticed. Go to www.baylor.edu and read the Vision 2012 statement. It is stunning. Just as interesting is the attempt by the president of Univ of Dallas to do the very reverse there. It's a Texas "Tale of Two Presidents"--one man can make a very big difference.
