At the center of an extraordinary BW experience is a caring and personal relationship with every student. Informed by the latest science, public health guidance and knowledge from our campus community, BW continues to keep our community safe, ensure access and quality for our students, and move our students forward toward degree completion. Those practices and procedures continue during the current semester, including the availability of rapid testing and COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters available to all members of the BW community at the Health Center. 

Class Notes Quarterly

The Spring-Summer 2022 issue of Class Notes Quarterly has been published featuring news from many generations of our YJ4Ls. Now more than ever, we love to celebrate good news! The next issue will publish in fall 2022.

YJ4L Spirit of Giving


Every Gift Really Does Make A Difference.

A little goes a long way at Baldwin Wallace. Make a gift and join thousands of alumni, parents, friends, students, faculty, and staff who support BW each year. All of those gifts add up in a big way.  Last year, more than 4,700 alumni and friends made gifts to the University. Collectively those gifts contributed nearly $1.4 million to BW's budget. A true example of the YJ4L spirit!

Where to Give? 

Support what matters most to YOU.

You can designate your gift to a variety of annual funds supporting the University and our students, including seven academic scholars funds, the YJ4th Year scholarship described above or area of greatest need. Learn more here.

Every gift matters.  Make yours today.
