Through Butler Innovation, we are challenging the traditional
boundaries of higher education to advance our vision for leadership
in the creation and delivery of transformative student-centered
learning experiences that prepare graduates to make a meaningful
impact in the world.
The Innovation Fund provides grants to
students, faculty, and staff to support ideas that foster
creativity, facilitate collaboration, and help us reach new levels
of excellence. The University has invested in 18 projects in the
fund's first grant round and is currently accepting
applications for round two. Please contact Susan
MacLaren to request an application.
Innovation University empowers
change at the college level, distinguishing Butler through
forward-thinking programs and a strengthened commitment to
community engagement, experiential learning, and international
education. 2013 marked the launch of Butler's first online courses,
a major milestone for the University, and a platform for exciting
changes planned in 2014 and beyond.
Finally, Innovation Unbound challenges us to
imagine Butler as the institution it can become, without
constraints. The faculty engaged in this open and strategic
dialogue are making great progress and will present initial ideas
to the Butler community in the first half of 2014.
Thank you for your support of Butler Innovation and we look
forward to your ideas.
