Welcome Baker Alumni

Over the years, I’ve seen Baker alumni do a lot of incredible things and heard even more stories that encapsulate the spirit of our alma mater, but I’m not sure there’s ever been a more exciting time to be part of the Baker family than right now. We’re building big businesses, exploring exciting new enterprises, leading major American cities, and — more than anything — we’re winning. As you’ll see on this site, our fellow alumni are getting awards and taking prominent positions in their fields at a whirlwind pace.

Here’s a quick overview of our new alumni site, where we intend to keep you engaged and excited about what is going on at Baker. Learn more about the Alumni Advisory Council and scholarships. View the Baker Proud archives. Use the alumni section to learn more about your alma mater and former classmates. If you would like to know more about Baker on a daily basis be sure to join our social networks.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT | Compassion & Public Service

Sworn into office as Nashville’s first female mayor on Sept. 25 after winning a run-off election.

“Baker gave me the foundation to be a critical thinker. Dr. [Lowell] Gish is just one example of the professors I had that instilled in me that as you go out in the world, you end up being much more successful if you’re a thinker.”     READ MORE in the Baker Proud »
