Research Week 2017

Research Week 2017 took place during the week of October 23, 2017 through October 27, 2017. The week began with Benefacta Day, followed by three days of honoree presentations, and concluded with the Creative Endeavor of the Year Lecture and the Researcher of the Year Lecture.


Benefacta Day
This annual, invitation only gala, celebrates the researchers and creative artists who have received internal and external funding for their work in the previous academic year. Benefacta also serves as the launch party for SPA's Ball State Research Magazine (the newest edition will be available after Benefacta). The Sponsored Projects Administration is thrilled to once again host this celebration and honor our outstanding faculty for their accomplishments.
