Message to The Guild
From the President of HBU

Dr. Robert B. Sloan
Dear Friends,HBU looks back on the many blessings of 2018 with gratitude and already has much to be thankful for this new year. We have just welcomed our largest freshman class in history this fall! Also, this fall we launched eight new degree programs, including our third doctoral program, the EdD in Executive Leadership in Mental Health and Human Services.

Spring will bring another momentous milestone in the history of the University. In 2020 we will celebrate 60 years since the founding of HBU! Since 1960, Houston Baptist University has grown into a thriving community of faith and scholarship, offering students “A Higher Education” that prepare them not only to excel in their careers, but also to succeed in life. Thanks to you, the members of The Guild, a number of graduate students receive scholarship support, which allows them the opportunity to create their own life-changing experiences and memories as they prepare to serve the Lord in education and ministry in Houston and beyond.

As we embark on 2019, Sue and I have no doubt this year will be HBU’s greatest yet. Thank you again for all that you do to support HBU, its mission, and its students.
