Future Students

President's Welcome

President Randy O'RearWelcome to the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor! We are so glad you are interested in learning more about this great university. Since 1845, our mission has been to provide the finest in Christian higher education. Our learning community is committed to helping students advance their knowledge and prepare for the challenges of a rapidly changing world. It is our hope that, when students graduate from UMHB, they leave not just with diplomas but also with a clear vision of how to live a successful life, no matter where their paths may lead from that point on.

It is our goal to offer learning experiences in an environment where we value personal attention to each student. We believe that the size of our campus, the quality of our faculty, and our commitment to Christian values and service combine to make an education at UMHB an extraordinary experience. We truly believe that, at UMHB, our students get an "education for life" and the "experience of a lifetime."

As you visit this web site, you will get a glimpse of the many campus activities and exciting courses that we offer to help our students grow intellectually, socially, and spiritually. I hope you will follow up this "virtual visit" with an actual visit to our campus soon. I have no doubt that, when you visit with our faculty, staff, and students, you will understand why we're eager to share the UMHB experience!

Randy O'Rear, Ed.D.
