|Working with the Department of Natural Resources and
Management, CERES helped to restructure an existing departmental minor

to all Ball State students as an interdepartmental program. It is
to give students an understanding of energy issues within their own

In addition to complementing students' career skills, the minor is designed to increase students' awareness of energy's role in their personal lifestyles. This component of the minor makes it particularly attactive to students who are especially sensitive to and concerned about their own effect upon society and the environment.
CERES continues to offer support to this program. This occasionally has taken the form of financial support to departments for teaching energy-related courses. The center's staff also offers specialized advising services to students interested in this minor as well as access to the technical equipment and resources of CERES.
