Center for Urban Ecology @ Butler

The Center for Urban Ecology was founded in 2004 by faculty and staff in the Department of Biological Sciences. They realized the need to advance our understanding of ecological systems as they adapt and function in an urban setting. Given the location and urban context of the Butler Campus, it is a natural backdrop for the center, functioning as both an outdoor classroom and research site.

Additionally, the center's establishment coincided with the 'Dare to Lead' planning process at Butler, a plan to re-affirm the mission and commitments of the University. The center seeks to meet the 'Dare to Lead' plan by providing students with invaluable experiential learning opportunities through on-site research and community partnerships.
