Our Faculty Colloquium Series features occasional research oriented lectures intended primarily for faculty and graduate students. Advanced undergraduates are encouraged to attend as well. The lectures are presented by Ball State faculty and visiting faculty from other institutions. An abstract for each talk will be linked approximately a week ahead of the scheduled date.
