Institutional Research

In support of our commitment to collecting and preserving information about the University, we perform such functions as compiling the annual University Fact Book, managing Butler’s reporting requirements (surveys and rankings), and providing research and statistical consulting services.


The Butler University Fact Book is a comprehensive compilation of official Butler University data. In it you will find information on students (enrollment, retention, and awarded degrees) and faculty (college distribution, course load). 

The Common Data Set is a standardized annual survey, developed through the collaborative effort of higher education institutions and college guide publishers, which acts as a general institutional FAQ resource.

Six-year graduation rate reported by sex, income, and race/ethnicity.
