In an effort to bring cultural awareness and diversity to the Ball State University campus, the National Pan-Hellenic Council would like to build the NPHC Plaza. This space would heighten the awareness of this diverse and unique council on campus, and appeal aesthetically and culturally to prospective students and their families.
Construction of the NPHC Plaza is an attempt to enhance the physical environment of our campus and simultaneously support the educational mission, as well as the campus' master plan. We hope to raise awareness of Ball State University's diverse traditions, and preserve that diversity for generations to come. While each student's university experience is different, students wish to see their experiences reflected tangibly in order to have a true attachment to the institution they have come to love.
Over the years, the National Pan-Hellenic Council organizations have developed plazas/plots on college campuses and treated them almost as sacred grounds. These structures symbolically represent the organization, and appear in various forms.
The National Pan-Hellenic Council Plaza is also an effort to enhance the visible diversity that our campus community can enjoy, and attract diverse populations that value diverse traditions in their perspective collegiate choice. It is the NPHC council's mission to not only promote their diverse backgrounds but for our university to reflect those same perspectives that can create a positive and rewarding environment for all students.
The proposed location of the plaza will be positioned on the southeast side of the new Multicultural Center, located east of Bracken Library between the Whitinger Business Building and Noyer Complex.
