Fall 2020 

Book Arts Collaborative 

Book Arts Collaborative is an immersive community letterpress and hand-sewn book bindery where the students are first taught and then they teach the community. This is done working with Tribune Showprint. In fall 2020, the class will be History of the Book. The course is English 421: Studies in Literary History and will meet 2:00-2:50 MWF. Later in the semester, there will be floating lab times scheduled at the students' convenience. 

Hear past students talk about what they have gained from the course.

CS4MS+: Computer Science for Muncie (and Surrounding) Schools

In this project you will:

  • Have a significant positive impact in the lives of hundreds of local school students and teachers

Measuring and Reporting Sustainability

Sustainability reporting is a strategy for monitoring and improving an organization’s environmental, social, and economic progress toward sustainable development goals. Thousands of multinational companies use the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards to publicly disclose their goals, successes, and challenges. For eight years, teams of students have collaborated with Ball State’s Council on the Environment and a host of administrators, faculty, and community members to prepare sustainability reports for Ball State. By the end of this project, students were well-versed in the process, metrics, and GRI framework for sustainability reporting.

Be a part of the team that prepares Ball State's 9th sustainability report during fall of 2020. Undergraduate and graduate students with interest in sustainable development, energy and material flow, organizational governance, social equity, or those with expertise in journalism, writing, accounting, photography, or graphic and publication design should apply. This class (SUST 330) is worth three credits and meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11:00 to 11:50am.
