The newly merged Geological Sciences and Natural Resources and Environmental Management departments are now call the Department of Environment, Geology, and Natural Resources.
We still maintain the wonderful features and feel of the original departments, but now have combined resources to become even more effective and efficient. This merger formalizes the many collaborations our faculty and students have been doing for years.
We continue to be student centered and work to provide our students with the most personalized and hands-on experiences possible. Our students not only learn traditional ideas and techniques in the classroom, but also become involved in our communities where they use what they have learned to help solve issues.
COVID -19 update:
With everything that’s going on in the world, why are we asking you for money? Because in the weeks and months ahead, our students will need it. Not just our majors; every student in every major.
If you aren’t in a position to give right now, no problem. We understand.
But if you are in a position to give, we also suggest you consider helping students experiencing extreme financial hardship, such as trouble paying tuition, rent, or monthly bills. We are asking that you also consider giving to one of two university funds to help students experiencing hardships.
Of course, you are still welcome to give directly to our department to help our students more directly. Either way, we are so grateful for your continued support – especially in these uncertain times!
Thank you for your commitment to Ball State University.
We hope you will consider giving any amount you can to help us support our students through:
- research support
- general support
