About Founders Day

Each year, two individuals (representing faculty, administration, or the Board of Trustees) are selected for commemoration on the Memorial Wall located on the North Quad.  The annual Founders Day luncheon and wall ceremony creates an opportunity for the Baldwin Wallace community to reflect upon our shared past, present, and future. In remembering the legacy of our founder, John Baldwin, and celebrating the lives and lasting impact of  two former members of the BW family, together we honor the history upon which our present is built and look to the future for which we serve and invest today. See the full list of Memorial Wall honorees.
