The John and Janice Fisher Institute for Wellness and Gerontology at Ball State University offers interdisciplinary educational programs that give you the opportunity to find real-world solutions to real-world problems. We engage students through immersive learning opportunities – melding content, skills, societal need, and your interests.
We offer educational experiences that support students as they design, implement, and evaluate wellness programs for individuals of all ages. Our programs take you within community agencies, health care facilities, businesses, and school corporations, where your ideas can help change lives. Our faculty and student research focuses on multidimensional approaches to health and well-being for individuals, families, and communities and on innovative techniques for achieving higher levels of wellness throughout individual lifespans.
We are part of College of the Applied Sciences and Technology, Ball State’s second largest academic college.
