Ball State has always been a leader in providing on-campus accessibility to its students, faculty and staff. The McKinley Safety Improvement Project, the construction project that totally reshaped the main thoroughfare on campus, made buildings along the route more accessible to disabled students as well.
U.S. Congressman Mike Pence announced that the U.S. Department of Education has awarded a grant of $113,257 for Ball State University's Disabled Student Development and its Division of Student Affairs.
"I am pleased to hear that Ball State will be receiving these funds to ensure a top-quality educational experience for their students," Pence said. "With the kind of steps Ball State is taking and the funding awarded in this grant, Ball State Uiversity will not only continue to be a great educational institution in the state of Indiana, but will continue to serve as a model to all schools nationwide."
