President's Annual Report 2006
Creative Collaboration

Ball State students delved into science and theatre to create an original play that explores the ethics of genetic engineering in the Human Faustus Project, a seminar at the Virginia B. Ball Center for Creative Inquiry. The center has established an international reputation for innovative, inspiring education and offers students the chance to engage with faculty in an intense interdisciplinary seminar for a full semester's credits. Designed to engage the public in dialogue on bioethical issues, the play was first presented at a reading at the Indiana Repertory Theatre in Indianapolis and recently was selected from among colleges and universities across the country to be performed at the opening presentation of the national conference of the Council on Undergraduate Research in Alexandria, Virginia. It also will be staged as part of University Theatre's 2007–08 season.
