About Baker

In 1858, Kansas was untamed territory. That’s when men and women of vision founded the first university in Kansas – Baker University. That same vision remains today, more than 150 years later, as Baker faculty continually revise, renew and develop new programs to meet the needs of a changing society. That commitment to innovation and excellence is reflected in the accomplishments of Baker graduates and their contributions to the communities in which they live.

Baker honors military service

Baker University is proud of its designation as one of America’s 2013 Top Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities by G.I. Jobs magazine, the fourth year in a row that Baker has been recognized. In addition to its participation in the Yellow Ribbon program, Baker offers generous tuition discounts for qualified military and spouses.
