One of the responsibilities of the provost is assisting with the university’s strategic planning. The strategic plan defines the mission, vision, and strategies that will advance Ball State.

Private gifts enhance the many accredited programs that we offer. With this support, we can create more options, maintain our reputation of having state-of-the-art technology and facilities, and continue offering research opportunities to faculty and students.

As an institution, Ball State is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Our last review was in 2013, and we are happy to report that our continuing accreditation was approved in 2014 for a 10-year period, during which no monitoring or follow-up reports are required.

We also review programs, taking an assessment of each academic unit on campus. We do these reviews to see if any changes need to be made to those units.
