The Daily News


Members have been selected for the panel to investigate the course and Ball State professor accused of teaching Christianity in the classroom.

Four professors, one from Indiana University and three from Ball State, will examine the materials regarding Eric Hedin, an assistant professor of physics, and his class “The Boundaries of Science.” The class focuses on discussion regarding the limits and holes in science.

According to The Star Press, Gary Dodson, a professor of biology; Juli Eflin, a professor of philosophy; Richard Fluegeman Jr., a professor of geological sciences; and Catherine Pilachowski, a professor of astronomy at IU, will decide what measures Ball State should take, if any, after reviewing the course and talking to Hedin. 

Joan Todd, executive director of public relations, told the The Star Press the university does not yet have a specific timeline for the panel.
