            2007-2009, EdD

            Attending Baker for my doctorate was one of the best decisions I ever made. The faculty is great and it allowed me to grow in my chosen higher ed profession while teaching full time.

          • Testimony
            2009-2011, BSM

            Baker allowed me to complete my undergraduate with a degree of flexibility not offered at other institutions. I attended the Overland Park campus one night a week. There was a great deal of work outside the class room but at my own scheduled, which was valuable since I maintained my full time job while attending Baker. Their approach for teaching is varied and offers a variety of learning environments. Be sure to consider Baker if you are considering pursuing any college courses.

            1979-1983, BS

            Baker University offers a student the opportunity to take their classroom education and apply it to not only a career but also to life skills. An education is of less value unless you know how to work with other individuals in society using the teachings , values and morals strengthened at Baker.
