Reinhardt University selected Susanna Baxter, Georgia Independent College Association president, as the keynote speaker for the commencement ceremony today.

More than 240 students will participate in the ceremony at the James and Sis Brown Athletic Center on Reinhardt’s campus at 9 a.m.

Prior to joining the GICA in 2010, Baxter served as the chief operating officer for the Tennessee Independent Colleges and Universities Association for 10 years.

She worked as the dean of students at Barton College in North Carolina before beginning her association work.

Baxter earned her bachelor of arts in both religion and Christian education from Pfeiffer University, and went on to earn both her masters of Education and doctor of education degrees in higher education leadership and policy from Vanderbilt University.

While in Tennessee, Baxter worked to establish several collaborative organizations in order to better serve private colleges.

The first was the Coalition for College Cost Savings, a national group purchasing organization providing a range of contracts for small- to medium-sized private colleges in order to help reduce expenditures and improve efficiency.

The second organization she helped create was a statewide public and private college coalition to foster healthy and safe campuses with a focus on alcohol and other drug abuse prevention.

Baxter is a member of the Georgia Professional Lobbyist Association and Atlanta Rotary. She is married to Mark R. Huffman and they, along with their two sons, live in Atlanta.

According to DegreeRegistry .org , a general MBA can be obtained for as little as $6k and as high as $120k. If students would do a little research, they would find that it is not nearly as expensive to get a college degree
