The Office of Institutional Diversity is excited to announce the second annual Dream Makers Day! 

Our Program:

Dream Makers Day is a dynamic community engagement learning experience for local Muncie community high school students to discover how a college education can help them achieve their dreams. The program is open to Muncie Central High School students who are current sophomores and juniors in good standing and have been underrepresented in U.S. higher education. The program challenges students to develop leadership skills, uncover a range of post-secondary options, and build an influential relationship through a mentor and student partnership. The program is part of Ball State University’s commitment to diversity.

Staff at the Center for Leadership Development will assist students with completing two interactive sessions that may range from college readiness assessment, college admissions, or to effective writing. Through these sessions students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the college admission process.

Dream Makers Day strives to give participants the tools and knowledge to make their college dream a reality!

The program is designed to:

  • Help students explore a variety of majors at Ball State University.
  • Learn about the admission process.
  • Explore and improve their college readiness skills.

Student Scholar Spotlight

Janice Carter
Ball State University Sophomore, Art and Animation

Janice Carter is an artist that was previously featured in our office. She is a sophomore here at Ball State University majoring in Animation. Carter is originally from Indianapolis and aspires to work with one of the top animation companies in America such as Disney, Nickelodeon or Dreamworks. As an art student she stays busy but admits she loves to relax by stating, “when I have spare time, that’s all I think about, naps!” To Carter, diversity is people from all walks of life gathering together and making opportunities equal among one another. Here at the Office of Institutional Diversity, we think that’s pretty great! We wish Janice the best of luck in all she does and look forward to her future works of art.  

The new Faculty and Student-Scholar Spotlight recognizes the scholarship and dedication of those within the Ball State University community who have demonstrated excellence in service.
