Ten Pillars: Faith & Reason in a Great City

A 12-Year Vision for the Future of Houston Baptist University


HBU will fulfill its responsibility for the renewal of Christian higher education through a vision organized around Ten Pillars:


These Ten Pillars are the reflection of envisioning sessions and conversations held with HBU faculty, staff, students, trustees, alumni, and selected members of the community.  The ideas and initiatives listed in this vision document all have their roots in those sessions. While the Ten Pillars do not exhaustively list all the suggestions, or all of our plans, they do capture the spirit and direction of our university family’s aspirations for HBU.
