MUNCIE – Ball State University officials are working on plans to open on office in downtown Fort Wayne to increase the school’s visibility and involvement in the city’s activities.
Initial plans are for the office to have a full-time director but not offer classes as do Ball State’s current centers in downtown Indianapolis and the Indianapolis suburb of Fishers.
Ball State associate vice president John Fallon told The Star Press (http://tspne.ws/1b2WclU ) the new office would aim to improve the availability of the school’s resources for public and private organizations in Fort Wayne.
Fallon said the Ball State office isn’t meant to compete with other colleges now in Fort Wayne.
Fallon said an office site has not been picked yet, but university officials want it to be conspicuous.
