Military magazine honors Baker University

Overland Park, Kan. — Baker University has been named one of America’s 2008 Top Military Friendly Colleges and Universities by Military Advanced Education magazine.

Honored in recognition of its commitment to military personnel and their families through educational support, Baker offers reduced tuition rates and waives the application for all active duty service members and spouses. Students receive college credit for all military training and specialized schools.

Baker also received high marks for having a corporate education specialist travel to military bases to visit with prospective students and educate them about the degree programs.

“Baker strives to help our service people gain new educational advantages and the discount is the most important tool that we use,” said Marvin Hunt, dean of Baker’s School of Professional and Graduate Studies. “Military personnel often seek business degrees.”

Baker has School of Professional and Graduate Studies campuses in Overland Park, Topeka and Wichita in Kansas; and Lee’s Summit and Kansas City in Missouri.

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