Welcome to Baker University

I am honored to serve as the president of Baker University, a wonderful community that has sustained for more than 150 years. Since I was announced as president at the end of 2013 and became immersed in the Baker family, I quickly learned about the difference this incredible institution has made in the lives of our alumni and students today.

Baker has created an environment where our distinguished faculty and staff are in position to touch the lives of our students—undergraduate, graduate and nursing—in meaningful ways. I was drawn to Baker because of that personal connection, tradition of academic excellence and outstanding values. With nearly 3,300 students across the region and an international partnership with Harlaxton College in England, Baker has a reputation of fostering critical thinking, teamwork and global awareness.

We join our students every step of their educational journey. The rigorous academics, enlightening campus activities, worthwhile internships and amazing study abroad opportunities develop our students for an enriching personal and professional lives. We will continue to provide a positive experience for our students at all of our schools and campuses. With tremendous support from the Baker community, we believe our students will be able to reach new heights, dream greater dreams for themselves than we ever dared and inspire us all.
