Baldwin Wallace University

Baldwin Wallace University is a private, liberal arts college offering bachelor's and master's degrees, located in Berea, Ohio. Our location, a residential community just 20 minutes from Cleveland, Ohio, facilitates our ability to provide liberal arts learning and practical career preparation.

When founded in 1845, Baldwin Wallace was one of the first colleges in Ohio to admit students without regard to race or gender.  That spirit of inclusiveness has flourished and evolved into a personalized approach to education: one that stresses individual growth as students learn to learn, respond to new ideas, adapt to new situations and prepare for the certainty of change.
