A Tradition of Excellence

Our tradition of academic excellence makes us one of the Midwest’s premier private universities.

Where Students Come First

At each of our four schools – College of Arts and Sciences, School of Nursing, School of Professional and Graduate Studies, and School of Education – faculty provide creative learning experiences while challenging students to analyze issues with depth and clarity. Students fully engage in their education and connect with peers, faculty and staff.

Connections, Inclusiveness & Community Service

Small class sizes and extensive interaction with instructors and fellow students promote a community of belonging and connections that last a lifetime. We embrace diversity of community, thought and expression. From this foundation, Baker students and alumni are able to address the civic, social, health and environmental needs of our global community.

Integrating Learning with Faith & Values

In the tradition of our United Methodist heritage, we encourage students to open themselves to questions of faith and values as part of intellectual inquiry and assume personal and professional responsibility based on high standards of ethical conduct.

Baker University is committed to assuring student learning, and developing confident, competent and responsible contributors to society.
