About Michael Storr

Michael currently serves as the Co-Director of Communication 210, a course within the core of Ball State’s general education curriculum. He also serves as an assistant coach of our nationally ranked Forensic Individual Events Team, a co-curricular activity with which he has been involved for over twenty years. Arriving in 2014, Michael strictly taught in the online environment, but quickly made his way into the face-to-face classroom in 2016 where he now teaches over 3,000 students every year. His dedication to teaching and coaching earned him the College of Communication, Information, and Media’s 2018 Excellence in Teaching Award. Michael is proud to call Ball State his home and his colleagues in the Department of Communication Studies his family, a family he thinks you should join and one that will welcome you with open arms.
