Farewell Ferguson

Editor's note: This profile has been updated.


After only 18 months on the job, President Paul W. Ferguson introduced several changes to the university, including bringing an emphasis on entrepreneurial education. He also moved to shift away from the "Education Redefined" years and Ball State's identification as a school focused on immersive learning.

Ferguson resigned Jan. 25 with virtually no explanation, saying only that he and his wife, Grace, would miss the school. It was an unexpected end to a presidential term that had been expected to last five years.

Until his resignation becomes official in March, Ferguson will be on a two-month sabbatical, approved to him by the Board of Trustees on Jan. 25. There is no word form university administration that sheds light on why Ferguson resigned.
