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 our students to excel.



We are committed to giving students the knowledge and experiences to become competent professionals and successful leaders. We don’t do it alone. Our alumni engage with students ways that give them the coaching and mentoring necessary to develop their skills. Your support shapes our students' lives and brings our students closer to the business community and alumni. An investment in the Miller College of Business benefits all—from current and future students—to the alumni that come back to visit.



Your gifts to our areas of greatest need enable 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 most pressing needs. These contributions allow us to engage our students in leadership and entrepreneurial opportunities and encourage faculty development and innovation. Your gifts to this fund support our special programs and speakers for our students and alumni, enhance students’ progress toward career success, and provide student travel to conferences for career development.

1212 Miller College SOAR Program

In the Fall of 2020, we launched a new program that focuses on preparing our students for successful careers and professional employment. This program is called SOAR to reflect the Success, Opportunity, Acumen and Readiness focus of its activities. Your support of this program allows us to offer those opportunities and activities that will enhance a student's ability to convey their professional competencies and to promote themselves as the preferred candidate for employment. Contributions to SOAR will directly help our students discover their career passion, develop their professional skills, and network in their job search.
