STUDENT EXPERIENCE

As early as I can remember, I have always enjoyed helping others. From my experience, giving back is the most rewarding and connects with what is important to me. There are countless rewards to giving back, building relationships, and serving both our Baker and Baldwin City communities. Baker Serves has offered me that opportunity to give back at Baker University. I am proud to be leading the organization and hope you will join me in serving others through Baker Serves.

Service Learning

At Baker, we believe in developing students into responsible contributors to society and caretakers of their communities. Most Baker students get involved in at least one service project during their college career, engaging in community service locally and in the region, nation, and even the world. Voluntary community service may be a one-time, short-term project or a lengthy, ongoing commitment by a group or just one student.

Every service experience is integrated into and enhances the academic curriculum of the student. Baker knows student learning takes place not only within the classroom but also outside and within our community. Service learning promotes hands-on learning by accomplishing the following:

  • Addresses community needs
  • Engages in civic responsibility
  • Actively reflects on the learning taking place
  • Develops strengths that last a lifetime

Projects organized by Baker students reach beyond the campus to directly affect communities, often through partnerships with agencies such as Habitat for Humanity and Harvesters Community Food Network. Organizations such as Baker Serves and projects such as The Big Event and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service give students an opportunity to have fun in selfless support of worthwhile causes.
