Immersive Learning 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. 

In spring 2020, the Office of Immersive Learning selected nine students from all colleges of the university to serve on the inaugural advisory committee.


2020-21 Immersive Learning Student Advisory Board Members:

Chris Bucker, Senior, Computer Science, representing the College of Sciences and Humanities

Alex Campbell, Senior, Criminal Justice, representing the College of Sciences and Humanities

Hannah Flint, Junior, Speech Language Pathology, representing the College of Health

Hunter Wallace, Senior, Computer Science, College of Sciences and Humanities

Immersive Learning Student Advisory Board responsibilities fall into three categories of activity. Members serve as (1) student leaders that assist in advancing the mission of Immersive Learning at Ball State; (2) an immersive learning resource for students in their college; and (3) immersive learning ambassadors to various audiences and stakeholders.

Student advisory board members are selected from a pool of nominations put forth by various campus units. Self-nominations are also accepted. A call for board nominations will be posted in the spring of each academic year. If you are a student interested in serving on the committee or wish to nominate someone to this board, examine the nomination guidelines and process. A nomination application link will go up at the beginning of the spring semester each academic year.
