Representatives from the Office of Community Engagement, Ball State’s Teachers College and Muncie Community Schools have teamed up for the new “Better Together” newsletter, created to share the stories of the historic partnership between Ball State University and Muncie Community Schools.

Bria Zolman, president of the MCS Community Engagement Council, talks about the council’s efforts during a MCS-BSU Partnership meeting.


The newsletter will be delivered to inboxes at the beginning of each month – with a two month break over the summer – packed with storytelling that will help community members answer the question: “What’s going on with the BSU-MCS partnership?” (Spoiler alert: A LOT is going on!)

Check out the first issue: BETTER TOGETHER NEWSLETTER MARCH 2024
