Teaching, research, and service constitute the mission of Ball State University, Indiana's only public institution of higher education with a college of architecture and urban planning. 

Since its founding in 1966, the College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) has established and promoted specific programs that combine teaching, research, and service activities that focus on the environmental design and planning professions. One such program is Community Based Projects (CBP), which is primarily responsible for activities focused on the many communities that make up Indiana—from inner-city neighborhoods to rural small towns.
