As an anchor institution in East Central Indiana, Ball State is proud to partner with individuals, agencies, and organizations to tackle our region’s greatest needs. The University has made strategic community commitments in K-12 education, talent attraction and retention, neighborhood development, population health and wellbeing, arts and culture, and lifetime learning.
At Ball State, we define community engagement as the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity with our friends and neighbors in Muncie and East Central Indiana.
