Moving Wayland Forward

Dr. Bobby Hall Wayland Baptist University is a very special place, both to those who attended and those who choose to invest in her students and her mission. If you’re an alum, know that your relationship with Wayland doesn’t end when you graduate. We want you to stay connected through alumni events, our magazine and social media avenues.

Giving to Wayland is especially rewarding for both alumni and friends as they see the investment into today’s students as an extension of their own ministry. By making the special experience we call Wayland accessible and affordable to more students, donors really are able to expand their impact on the world.

There’s never been a greater need for what Wayland Baptist University delivers, not just on its home campus in Plainview, but around the world. I invite you to join me in connecting with and giving to Wayland. It’s one of the best investments you’ll ever make.

Dr. Bobby Hall, BS’82, MS’85
