About the Rinker Center

The Marshall E. Rinker Sr. Center for International Programs was dedicated October 23, 2006, honoring the philanthropist and founder of Rinker Materials Corporation. “Doc” Rinker was born in Muncie, Indiana, in 1904 and attended Ball State 20 years later. Although his time at Ball State was brief, the experience left a strong impression on his life.

The Rinker family's generosity and legacy help our students to see the world, expand their minds, and dedicate themselves to incorporating the world’s best ideas and practices into their careers and their daily lives.

We also bring the world to Ball State, assisting international students as they apply for admission
