Alumni & Parent Programs

Alumni Chapters and Regional Representatives


Alumni chapters provide graduates with the opportunity to stay updated on what is taking place on Butler's campus no matter where they live. Chapters also provide an easy way for Butler alumni to come together in a friendly environment through social and service events. They bring together Butler graduates, encourage alumni activities in the community and promote the interests and welfare of Butler University. Current and former parents, friends and donors are often included in all chapter events and news.

Current chapters include:

Requirements to Start a Chapter

Alumni chapters are typically established in locations where approximately 300 or more alumni reside with a core organizing group of at least 12 members. The Office of Alumni and Parent Programs will assist with the creation of a chapter; however, the successful formation of a chapter is dependent largely upon the enthusiasm and dedication of the alumni who assume responsibility for their role.  The 12 organizing members may seek to form a chapter by submitting to the Alumni Board a petition that:

(a) states the proposed name of the Chapter, the proposed geographic area to be served, and the purposes for which the Chapter is to be formed; 

(b) states the names of at least twelve (12) initial organizers who have committed to a two-year term; and 

(c) provides that the members of the proposed Chapter agree to abide by the Alumni Association Guidelines and Requirements and the policies of the Office of Alumni and Parent Programs.

If the Board approves the petition, the Alumni Chapter may begin to function as an official body of the Association for an initial two year trial period. The Alumni Chapter must promptly submit to the Office of Alumni and Parent Programs its initial operating plan including annual goals, communication calendar and strategies and programming.

Regional Representatives

Often there are areas of alumni in a city or region that are not large enough to support a chapter; however, these areas are locations the University will host annual or biannual events. Current and former parents, friends and donors are included in regional alumni programming activities.
