Student Honors Council
Students elected to Butler University’s Student Honors Council (SHC) are the leaders of an active and robust Honors campus community. Board members serve a calendar-year term, with elections being held in November for the following year. The SHC works closely with the University Honors Program Faculty and Staff to develop events and programming that will benefit, promote, and engage our students in both the BU community and with our network of Honors alumni.
All Honors students are welcome to apply for leadership positions on the SHC! Scroll to meet your 2023 Representatives.
