Ball State’s English Department provides an ambitious schedule of public events which bring faculty, students, alumni, and community members together. These include:
- Readings by visiting writers
- Gatherings and presentations by and for student groups such as the English Education Club and the Sigma Tau Delta honors society
- Career readiness/professional development events such as the Stars to Steer By speakers series, in which Ball State alumni talk to students about how they found their career paths.
This public programming has helped make the English Department the center of a lively community. As a result, we are among the few English departments nationwide that has seen enrollment increase over the last ten years.
Help us to sustain and build upon this success by supporting this ambitious programming.
