Park Hall was named for Don Park, a former vice president for university advancement at Ball State. His dedicated administrative leadership contributed significantly to the growth and development of the university. Park, who served as an assistant professor of education administration in Teachers College and rose to full professor in 1974, also served Ball State and the people of Muncie during a four-year term as an Indiana state senator from 1970 to 1974.
