As a follow-up to our November post Accessible Education in Indiana, INDATA wanted to recognize Ball State University. Disability Friendly Colleges recently included Ball State in their list of 75 colleges to exceed beyond the American with Disabilities Act guidelines.
Ball State earned this acknowledgement for its exceptional student disability services, which include accessible residential housing, adaptive PE classes, wheelchair repair, and accessible shuttle service. They uphold their reputation for being disability friendly with programs like Power Soccer, a soccer team for wheelchair users, and their faculty mentor program, which matches students with disabilities with faculty members in their major for personal support and guidance in their transition to college.
We would like to congratulate Ball State University for their outstanding efforts and look forward to keeping up with further developments in accommodating students with disabilities.
