Our center provides training to high and middle school teachers through the Insurance Education Institute. The institute is funded by grants from the Insurance Education Foundation (IEF). Located in Indianapolis, IEF is a nonprofit charitable organization whose goal is to improve the understanding of insurance and its role in society through the education of teachers and students.

Participants must also be admitted to Ball State. To find out more about this program, see our Online and Distance Education site.
