Established in 1845, Baylor University has cultivated a legacy of educating more than 168,000 men and women for worldwide leadership and service throughout her first 170 years. As the oldest continually operating university in Texas, Baylor’s iconic campus of cream columns and brick buildings is nestled on 1,000 spacious acres in Waco.
Northrise University, founded in 2004, has recognized 240 graduates to date. The first private, Christian university in Zambia plans to expand from one building, currently located in downtown Ndola, to multiple academic buildings, a library, residential living space, recreational fields and a student center on the 640 acres of land granted to them by the Zambian government.
On the surface, it would seem the differences between Baylor and Northrise are as vast as the nearly 9,000 miles between the two campuses. But a commitment to Christian values and academic excellence has brought together these seemingly disparate communities in profound ways.
