Former Baylor president to lead conservative school
Sep 05, 2006
Houston Baptist University trustees have elected Robert Sloan, former president of Baylor University, as president of the 2,300-student school.
Sloan, who assumes the new post this month, most recently was chancellor of Baylor, the largest Baptist university in the world, after serving in Waco as the school’s president from 1995 to 2005. HBU has a $35 million annual budget in contrast to Baylor’s $350 million budget. He succeeded Doug Hodo, who served from 1987 until his retirement in July. HBU is a conservative school that relates to both the fundamentalist and traditional Baptist state conventions.
