About the Baker Peace Conference

The Baker Peace Conference is an annual event that brings together a diverse group of leading experts to discuss a significant national or international issue related to peace.

The first Baker Peace Conference took place in 1988, six years after the late Dr. John C. Baker, the University's president from 1945-62, and his wife, Elizabeth, established the John and Elizabeth Baker Peace Studies Endowment to encourage the education of students and the general public in the means by which peace can be established and maintained throughout the world. The Baker Conferences are jointly sponsored by the Contemporary History Institute and the Baker Peace Studies Program.

All events are free and open to the public. Institute students participate in these conferences and are involved in helping to organize them.
