Company Profile
One hundred sixty-two years. Sixteen decades of serious scholarship. Over a century and a half spent preparing students to make a difference. Since 1846, the mark of a Taylor education has been to enlighten the mind and ignite the soul. Inscribed on the University seal is the motto "Lux et Fides" – light and faith, a standing testament of Taylor’s dedication to both ideals. On this page we want to introduce you to Taylor University – to capture the richness of our history and the foundation on which we are building our future. Spend a few minutes on our campus (or our website) and you can’t help but notice our passion for community. However, dig a little deeper and you find more than our 250 acres and buildings where people reside and study . . . you find an intentional community. As a whole, we are people who choose to live and to covenant together; resolving to wade into the messiness and capture the joy of real relationships. Relationships based on more than common interest or common rules, but on the common One. It's who we've been, who we are and who we will remain. Because within this covenant community we daily choose to study together, strive together and serve together. Without it, it would just be . . . four years. Check out the Taylor Experience .
