Since Butler's founding in 1855 by attorney and abolitionist Ovid Butler, the University has challenged and supported students in a liberal-arts environment that fosters both intellectual and social growth while providing practical, "real-world" skills. With over 60 major academic fields of study in six colleges, multiple opportunities to study abroad, and renowned faculty, Butler's curriculum gives students an experience of a lifetime and an edge that defies the norm.

The University is situated in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood on a 295-acre campus approximately five miles from downtown Indianapolis. With its convenient location, Butler is a destination for events in the Indianapolis community. It also is home to historic Hinkle Fieldhouse and the Butler Bulldogs, who participate in the BIG EAST athletic conference and Pioneer Football League.
