The Importance of Diversity and Inclusion

At Ball State, we celebrate diversity and inclusion as part of our community and culture.

That means we expect everyone to participate in and contribute to the collegial environment we’ve created.

Bias Incidents

A bias incident is a behavior or act—verbal, written, or physical—that is personally directed against or targets an individual or group based on race, color, religious belief, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national or ethnic origin, disability, veteran status, or age.
