PRESIDENT'S welcome

Welcome to Wayland Baptist University’s web site! Thanks for visiting. We're glad you're Dr. Paul Armeshere.

Choosing the university you will attend is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. We're glad you're considering Wayland, and want to help you make the best decision possible for your life and your future.

This University's mission is to exist to educate students in an academically challenging, learning-focused and distinctively Christian environment for professional success and service to God and humankind. Our graduates move into a variety of vocational fields. They also often continue their education through graduate studies.

Wayland is a place of academic excellence and faith-based priorities and values. Our home campus in Plainview is truly a family environment. Our external campuses seem to sense that they, too, are part of a very special and caring group of people. I hope we will have an opportunity to meet you and to introduce you to this wonderful university which has now entered its second century.

We are praying for you as you choose your future! May our Lord bless you and guide you in your decisions.


Dr. Paul Armes
President, Wayland Baptist University
