Baldwin-Wallace College, nestled in the quaint Cleveland suburb of Berea, boasts a rich history dating to the establishment of Baldwin Institute in 1845. Consistently at the forefront of national trends, Baldwin-Wallace was among the earliest U.S. colleges to admit women and minorities, and it established one of the first evening/weekend programs in the nation. Its founder, John Baldwin, insisted that education is a right for everyone, regardless of gender, race, or religion. This spirit of inclusiveness has been maintained, and today a Baldwin-Wallace education prepares students to be contributing, compassionate citizens in an increasingly global society. Campus traditions such as the Baldwin-Wallace Bach Festival, April Reign, Dance Marathon, and the faculty's personalized approach to learning unite students of the past and present in what so many alumni call the Baldwin-Wallace family.
