We’ll also highlight online collections where you can find high quality photography and images that are free to use.

Since 1959, The Writing Center has supported writers at Ball State. While our center is most well-known for our free, peer tutoring services, we also educate through workshops, presentations, writing communities, studio space, and online resources for writers. Additionally, we build relationships across campus to promote writing, and one of our most significant partnerships is with Ball State University Libraries. This presentation will discuss that unique partnership, which unites writing and research on campus. It’s our philosophy that all writers improve with practice and feedback, and now writers can get writing and research support in one location.

Reel Inclusion Waging ChangeWAGING CHANGE shines a light on an American struggle hidden in plain sight: the women-led movement to end the federal tipped minimum wage for restaurant workers. Most people serving food in U.S. restaurants are paid a federal sub-minimum wage of only $2.13 an hour and are forced to depend on tips to feed themselves and their families. Women, who hold two-thirds of all tip-based jobs, are especially affected. WAGING CHANGE includes a special section on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and reveals the key role consumers must play in ending this two-tiered wage system.
