Baldwin has been involved in community action activities wherever he has lived.  These activities have included coordination of asthma education camps for the Kansas branch of the American Lung Association, construction of an inner-city health clinic, securing funding for HIV/AIDS testing and education, and securing funding for substance abuse and mental health issues.

He has held positions as the associate dean of health occupations at Milwaukee Area Technical College, where he was responsible for the administration of six allied health programs, associate professor at Robert Morris University, associate professor at Florida A&M, and Respiratory Therapy program director at Morehead State University.

“Dr. Baldwin is a recognized clinician, professor and academic leader, ” said Dr. Roger Yohe, vice president of academic affairs. “I am confident that under his leadership, the health science programs will continue their upward trajectory in reputation and management.”

Baldwin earned his Ph.D. in administration/health services from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, master’s degrees from Morehead State University and Central Michigan University, a bachelor’s degree in allied health management from Madonna University, and an associate degree in respiratory therapy from Highland Park Community College.

He has been published in numerous professional journals on the topics of health, diversity and the enrollment of minorities in higher education.
