Student Advisory Board

The primary role of the Immersive Learning Student Advisory Board is to bring a student perspective to Ball State’s immersive learning priorities, events, and initiatives. Board members liaise with students from their college and serve as a standing focus group that provides suggestions, ideas, information, and concerns related to immersive learning programs. Members will also serve as student ambassadors at university-wide events, including showcases and awards programs sponsored by the Office of Immersive Learning.
