At Butler University, we want to share our knowledge, resources,
and talents with our greater community. We want to learn from
others' perspectives and collaborate with them to address common
concerns. We want to model how our students can discover their own
paths to make a difference in their world.
We expose incoming students to their new community through Ambassadors
of Change and Bulldogs in the Streets, and
thoughtful co-curricular activities, such as College Mentors for
Kids and Bulldogs Being Big, programs that foster positive
mentoring relationships between children and college students. Our
Community Requirement provides students active, reciprocal
learning experiences with city residents and
organizations-experiences integrated within courses and geared to
furthering students' ongoing relationships with community and
service. Students and faculty can expand their involvement in
crucial public issues, through initiatives such as the Center for Urban
Community Outreach Pharmacy, and our partnerships with
area public schools.
Butler welcomes the public to explore challenging ideas with us
through our Visiting
Writing Series, multi-day Butler ArtsFest, and the Celebration of
Diversity Distinguished Lecture Series.
