Baker: a community where excellence lives and students thrive.
We promote a community of belonging and Baker family connections, which result in lifelong associations.
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.
Alumni include four Rhodes Scholars, a Pulitzer Prize winner, entrepreneurs, educators, nurses, writers, artists, doctors, explorers and trendsetters who have shaped our world.
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.
Four schools comprise Baker University: College of Arts and Sciences, School of Education, School of Nursing, School of Professional and Graduate Studies.
