The Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture
As part of its contribution to Baylor University and the larger academic community, the Institute for Faith and Learning plans and directs a variety of conferences. Though oriented toward different audiences, these conferences feature Christian intellectual life as relevant to significant questions in academe and the wider culture.
The Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture seeks to address any significant person, problem, text, or question, and to do so in a way that constructively appropriates Christian faith and intellect in relation to the selected topic.
