The College of Sciences and Humanities

The College of Sciences and Humanities is home to the natural, mathematical, and computational sciences; social and behavioral sciences; and humanities. Our students are encouraged to take risks, make discoveries, and serve our neighbors. Ball State’s College of Sciences and Humanities (CSH) provides students with the skills they need to think critically, act globally, solve problems, and make sound judgments. Our faculty work side by side with our students in immersive learning, community engagement, and research. 

The College of Sciences and Humanities Fund Your gift allows these energetic, innovative and passionate students and faculty to cross boundaries and be part of the bigger story of our neighborhoods, community, state, and world. Your generous contributions will help:  

-Send talented students and faculty to conferences where they can discuss new ideas and share their research with colleagues. 

-Provide our innovative faculty support to develop partnerships that further our reach into communities and continue to connect our students with experiences that tackle real-world problems.  

-Support costs associated with undergraduate research activities such as equipment, field studies, travel, and conference fees. 

-Develop the Compass Program, an initiative that provides resources for students to translate their high demand skill sets into lucrative and purposeful careers.
