President's Installation and Community Events
The September 2017 installation of Geoffrey S. Mearns as our 17th president was a new beginning that honors both our accomplishments to date and our vision for the future, which we are all committed to.
He has pledged to partner with Muncie because we are better together. The president has called enhancing and expanding our support for Muncie a moral obligation.
Three days of activities, both on campus and in the community, surrounded the installation and supported our partnership with the community.
To strengthen the partnership between Ball State and the Muncie community, the Mearns/Proud Family Scholarship was unveiled during the president's installation Sept. 8.
