Our Vision


More than 100 years ago, Dallas Baptist University was founded because of the vision and faith of a handful of Texans. Today, DBU is a multi-faceted, thriving institution that is influential in changing the lives of adult students, both academically and spiritually.

In 1974 DBU established its College of Professional Studies, the oldest and most respected degree completion program in Texas. Since then, DBU has helped thousands of adult learners obtain a bachelor's degree and move closer to realizing their career, life, and spiritual goals.

The opportunity is now yours — and we're ready to help you make your academic vision a reality.

The DBU Mission

The mission of Dallas Baptist University is to provide Christ-centered quality higher education in the arts, sciences, and professional studies at both the undergraduate and graduate levels to traditional age and adult students in order to produce servant leaders who have the ability to integrate faith and learning through their respective callings.
