Be Part of the Solution
At the Baker School, our mission is to educate skilled problem solvers and prepare them to take public leadership roles and help our country solve the biggest challenges of our time. We are the first and only institution of our kind in the State of Tennessee.
Our faculty conduct research and work with policymakers to resolve major public policy challenges, and our students have opportunities inside and outside the classroom to build their problem solving skills so they are ready to build meaningful careers in public service.
As part of their Baker School experience, our undergraduate and graduate students are rooted in the legacy of Howard H. Baker Jr.
- CONFIDENCE IN AMERICA – Understanding and holding confidence in America’s institutions
- YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT – Respect for opposing viewpoints as a hallmark of leadership
- FINDING COMMON GROUND – Mastering the art of the possible to solve complex problems
Baker School students will find a wealth of mentoring and a wellspring of resources to grow their talents. Faculty are easily accessible to our students, and the Baker School network of contacts and alumni across the country stand ready to help our students find their way after graduation.
The Baker School is here to help students be part of the solution.
