Supporting and enhancing student success is at the forefront of our business. We foster a culture that believes in our students and demands that they believe in themselves. We challenge students to excel.
WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS
We are committed to giving students the knowledge, skills, and experiences to become competent professionals and impactful leaders. We don’t do it alone. Our alumni engage and connect with students in a way that gives them the coaching and time to develop their skills. You help us grow and support experiences that bring our students closer to the business community and alumni. Your gifts shape the lives of students. Over time, Ball State is receiving significantly less financial support from the state of Indiana. An investment in Miller College benefits all — from current and future students — to the alumni that come back to visit.
OUR NEXT INITIATIVE
We are beginning phase two of our Whitinger Business Building remodel focusing on student labs, and more specifically, the physical creation of our Student Success Center: a space outside the classroom where students can create and solidify connections, hone their skills and talents, work on team projects, seek academic coaching, and engage in professional development. In short, space for our student culture to flourish and for our alumni and the business community to engage with students. This is our most pressing need.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
The flexibility provided by gifts to our areas of greatest need enables us to meet student needs. Your support ensures our future stability and helps us maintain our competitive edge. Your help is more imperative than ever. Every gift – large or small – matters. Cardinals helping Cardinals. On One Ball State Day, you can help meet this need by contributing to our priority funds.
1201 Miller College Dean’s Fund for Excellence
This fund helps with our pressing needs. Gifts support us in engaging our students in leadership and entrepreneurial opportunities and encouraging faculty excellence. They mean offering special programs and speakers for our students and alumni, ways to enhance students’ career success and professional development, or providing student travel to conferences to present their research.
