The organization called for all charges against Baker to be dropped and for Penn State to take Baker off administrative leave, according to an Instagram post.
Baker allegedly engaged in a physical altercation with a counterprotester at CJU's Student-Faculty Unity Rally and was charged with harassment, disorderly conduct and simple assault.
According to CJU's Instagram post, Baker "attempted to peacefully deescalate the provocateur... fearing that people's safety was at risk."
The Instagram post from CJU said Baker was "wrongfully singled out" by police for prosecution.
The organization also said the university should "take steps to ensure the safety of all participants in future peaceful demonstrations on Penn State campuses."
