Comprehensive Goal

Orignial Goal

Upgrade our

Lab Facilities

Our undergraduate majors are not your typical undergrads. Many perform graduate-level research and compete at state and national events. The School of Math & Sciences needs an equally amazing space. 

We have received more than $6 million in commitments toward our $7.2 million goal. Achieving this goal will take the School of Math & Sciences to the next level.

More than students

Our Math & Science majors are not only making a difference in their fields of study but they are also influencing the world of science through research. 

Wayland Students continue to win research awards and state and regional academic competitions.


Build an

Athletics Facility

Wayland's athletic programs have brought home several national championships over the last few years.

The Athletic Training Center is a 10,000 square-foot facility with state-of-the-art strength and conditioning equipment, sprint track, and locker rooms. We've received a little more than $500,000 toward our $2.5 million goal. 

Athletic Excellence

At Wayland, we do a lot with a little. Though our current training facility is little more than a shed, our teams continue to compete with the best. This new training facility will empower our athletes to reach new heights. 


Gates Hall

Gates Hall was completed in 1911, and was named after Wayland's first president, Dr. Isaac E. Gates.

100 years have taken a toll on this beautiful building. Restorations to the exterior will allow Gates Hall to continue to be a hub for Wayland life.

Our Constant

Gates Hall origninally served as a combination of classrooms, dining hall, administration and dormitory for the 208 students originally enrolled in this newly founded college.

Through the years, all Wayland students --traditional, non-traditional, concurrent and external students -- have benefitted from the work that goes on in these hallowed halls of education.

Gates Hall serves as a symbol for our university's mission, a reminder of our tenacity and a vision for our future. 

Dr. Bobby Hall

What began as the vision of a pioneer doctor and his wife to provide a quality Christian education to their family and their community, grew into one of the largest Baptist institutions in the nation. As we look back over the past 109 years, we are humbled to see how God has used this great institution to serve more than 53,000 students. We believe this endeavor to renovate Gates Hall will honor those great pioneers who sought to bring Christian education to the high plains.



Impact our


Wayland has a strong history of supporting students through scholarships. 

Impact 2020 seeks to raise an additional $5.5 million in scholarships for current and future students.

Changing Students' Lives







$4.5 million


Your giving makes a huge impact on Wayland students. In 2018-19, your 362 endowed scholarships helped over 500 students get $800,000 closer to graduation.   

Marisa Martin


I want to be a missionary when I graduate. The scholarships I received are helping me get that much closer to my dream. Without the support of donors I wouldn't be able to go to college, much less study something I am passionate about.
