The Importance of Inclusive Excellence

At Ball State, we celebrate inclusive excellence as part of our community and culture.

Inclusive Excellence is designed to help colleges and universities integrate diversity, equity, and educational quality efforts into their missions and institutional operations.

Roundtable Events

This year, Ball State is engaging in a series of four inclusive excellence discussions with alumni, faculty, staff, students, and members of the local community. See highlights from each discussion or watch the full roundtable events.
