The Office of Educational Excellence is sponsoring a Faculty Learning Community on Community Engagement beginning fall semester 2015 and concluding summer semester 2016. In 2015, Ball State received Carnegie’s voluntary Community Engagement Classification. Our goal is to continue to discuss and debate the strengths and weaknesses of community engagement in an academic setting and to increase the number of faculty involved in community engaged teaching and research practices.

Participation is open to faculty members holding tenure track or contractual appointments in any academic unit of the university including Burris Laboratory School and the Indiana Academy teaching staff.
