Parents & Families

Parent Association

Parents of every Butler student automatically become members of the Parent Association. Through this organization, parents are invited to share and support their student's university experience in three primary areas:

  • By serving on the Parent Council, the governing body of the Parent Association.
  • Through career development opportunities with Internship & Career Services. Learn how you can get involved with student mentoring, workshop presentations and other opportunities that help our students prepare for the future.
  • By supporting the Butler Fund. Tuition simply doesn't cover the cost of educating each Butler student - the University relies on annual support through gifts from alumni, parents, and friends. The Butler Fund is an important component of the annual giving program. Gifts from current and past parents support numerous activities and areas on campus such as the Visiting Writers Series, laboratory equipment, business community outreach programs and Internet connections in each dorm room. Butler offers a wide variety of ways to give, and parents give at all levels. Find more information or make a gift.

All parents are encouraged to be an active participant in their student's education. Campus news, information and updates are distributed to parents through the Parent NewsFlash email newsletter. Past editions of the Parent NewsFlash email are available online. Families can also connect to one another on the Butler Parent Facebook page.
