The Ball State community takes great pride in our university’s international reputation in sustainability. In fact, our strategic plan, The Centennial Commitment (18 by ’18), specifically identifies our intent to leverage sustainability as a key branding element of Ball State University.

Our Board of Trustees, our leadership team across campus, faculty, staff, and especially students are actively involved in sustainability projects and remain critical to the continuing success of our efforts in this area.

This brochure provides for you a snapshot of some of the many exemplary sustainability efforts we have made in facilities management, campus planning, and building operations and includes a list of many awards and recognitions that the university has received.

I am hopeful that you will use this to gain a clear perspective on sustainability at Ball State University–and then explore more deeply into the opportunities for participation by going to the web pages indexed at

With best regards,

Paul W. Ferguson
Former President
