The Pillars Magazine

The Pillars is the news magazine of Houston Baptist University.

Formerly known as HBU News, the magazine has a vital history. Originally, it was a newsletter that informed readers about the events, faculty, and alumni of our younger university, which at the time was known as Houston Baptist College.

Our President, Dr. Robert Sloan, along with our Board and administrative team, completed a driving vision document to cast the future for Houston Baptist University entitled The Ten Pillars, which was unanimously approved by our Board of Trustees on February 19, 2008. This missional vision statement is so essential to who we are and the growth steps ahead, that it seemed appropriate to adopt the new name, The Pillars.
