Baker: a community where excellence lives and students thrive.
Four schools comprise Baker University: College of Arts and Sciences, School of Education, School of Nursing, School of Professional and Graduate Studies.
Alumni include four Rhodes Scholars, a Pulitzer Prize winner, entrepreneurs, educators, nurses, writers, artists, doctors, explorers and trendsetters who have shaped our world.
Baker is a private, liberal arts university that educates students through small classes, innovative instructors and rigorous coursework.
We challenge all students to think critically using open inquiry and freedom of expression.
For over 150 years students at the first university in Kansas have fully engaged in learning; connected with peers, faculty and staff and developed lifelong relationships.
We promote a community of belonging and Baker family connections, which result in lifelong associations.
Vision & Strategy
Strategic Planning Process
The University is engaged in a self-renewing planning process that provides information, learning, communication and engagement on departmental and university-wide development and growth. Long-term and yearly cycles help identify areas of strength and weakness, allowing us to adapt to changes within our industry and the national environment. With student learning as our top priority, all financial and programming decisions are designed to maximize the needs and best interests of our students.
A new 10-year strategic planning process was launched in October 2010 with research and board approval to be completed by fall 2012.
