Building Better Neighborhoods (BBN) is a collaborative effort between the Office of Immersive Learning, the Office of Community Engagement, and the Muncie Action Plan to improve our community’s neighborhoods. These immersive learning projects pull together student teams guided by faculty mentors to create unique, high-impact learning experiences that result in real-world solutions to Muncie’s challenges. Ball State faculty who have an idea for a BBN immersive learning project are encouraged to apply. Funding can be used for materials and other costs associated with your project. This round of funding can support projects expected to begin in spring or summer 2021. Completed proposals are due on or before 5 p.m., Friday, August 13, 2021.
