The Virginia B. Ball Center for Creative Inquiry enables faculty and students to
Four Ball State University faculty members are chosen each year to teach interdisciplinary seminars to 15 students. The students are chosen by application or audition. Working together with a community sponsor, each group of faculty and students creates a product (e.g. an exhibit, performance, or publication) to engage the community in public dialogue.
The center provides a summer stipend for faculty to prepare their seminar. The center also provides a semester's "leave" for the four fellows—two in the fall and two in the spring—to teach their seminars. And to help facilitate the work of the seminars, the center provides each group with an expense budget of $15,000.
