A community thrives when its citizens are involved, prepared and informed.

This is why the Bowen Center for Public Affairs
was created.

The Bowen Center for Public Affairs is a freestanding Center at Ball State University in the College of Sciences and Humanities and is allied with the Department of Political Science. The Center is located in the North Quad building on the Muncie, Ind. campus. The purpose of the Bowen Center for Public Affairs is to advance civic literacy, community involvement, public service and non-partisan government research to make a difference for you and your community.
