A former assistant to the provost, Baldwin joined MSU in 1978 as an assistant professor of military science. After leaving briefly, he returned in 1985 and was named chair of the Department of Military Science. During his tenure, he held numerous titles. He also served on the Morehead City Council for 13 years.

“I am delighted we are dedicating the Veterans Resource Center to Al,” said President Wayne D. Andrews. “He’s a friend, an MSU retiree, and a veteran. Al has dedicated his life to serving others.

“He has a great heart for veterans, for students and for Morehead State University.”

Born in Danville, he attended public schools in Hopkinsville and graduated from Vicenza (Italy) American High School. He earned his B.A. degree from Eastern Kentucky University and M.A. degree in history from MSU.

A Commandant’s List graduate of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, Baldwin is a graduate of the Defense Language Institute.

He received the Bronze Star, two Meritorious Service Medals, the Joint Service Commendations Medal and two Army Commendation Medals.

Before retiring from the Army with the rank of lieutenant colonel, Baldwin held various commands and staff positions during his 22-year career.

MSU opened the Veterans Resource Center in 2012.

Located in 304 Breckinridge Hall, the Veterans Resource Center was established to build on the University’s continued efforts of providing MSU’s military and veteran students with the service, support and assistance they have earned. The goal is to eliminate obstacles and ensure that our veterans transition to college with greater ease.

The center assists prospective and current student veterans by providing counseling and direction on all educational benefits, enrollment and registration assistance, counseling resources and referrals, academic and career assistance, and by creating a place for student veterans to study or relax and reconnect with their fellow student veterans.

The center is open Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. It is equipped with study tables, refrigerator, microwave, couches, recliners and a flat-screen TV.

Additional information is available from the Office of Development at 606-783-2033.
