About

History

Founded in 1858 as the first university in Kansas, Baker is an institution with a storied past. While standing in the center of our beautiful campus in Baldwin City, a person can do a 360-degree turn and see three buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Lady Margaret Thatcher dedicated our Osborne Chapel, which was moved brick by brick from Sproxton, England. 

Education

At each of our four schools—College of Arts and Sciences, School of Nursing, School of Professional and Graduate Studies, and School of Education—faculty provide creative learning experiences while challenging students to analyze issues with depth and clarity.
