The Innovation Fund was established by Butler University President James M. Danko as a means to support projects that foster creativity and collaboration, with the idea of helping the institution reach unprecedented levels of excellence and recognition, especially in the areas of teaching and learning. President Danko appointed the Innovation Fund's custodian by naming Jason Range to the role of executive director.

The Butler community is welcomed and encouraged to contact Range regarding not only the Innovation Fund, but the concept of Butler Innovation as well.
