Alumni & Parent Programs

Alumni Associations

Alumni and parents are valued members of the Butler University community. Butler's Alumni Association includes all alumni; you are considered an alumnus if you earned 30 credit hours or more at Butler. Today's Alumni Association is governed by a board of directors and is organized into regional and affinity chapters. Although roughly two-thirds of Butler graduates are in Indiana, our 43,000+ alumni live in every state and in more than 50 foreign countries. The Association welcomes everyone "home" to the Butler campus or to support the University wherever you live.

The Office of Alumni and Parent Programs oversees alumni and parent organizations that are designed to be inclusive. None of our organizations collect membership dues. They do, however, offer many benefits and volunteer opportunities. We administer many organizational bodies that will reconnect you with Butler and support the University's tradition of excellence.
