Your Support Has Been an Inspiration

Banner image reading Butler University, A Message from University Advancement

Dear Butler Alumni and Supporters,

As members of our Butler family, you and your loved ones are on our minds during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your many supportive messages and inquiries in recent days about how to support our students and community during this crisis. I know this situation is affecting all of you in a variety of ways, so your expressions of concern for our students are particularly meaningful. Please know that in the coming weeks we will share opportunities for you to best support our students and the University more broadly.

While this situation is changing our University life in a number of unexpected ways, one thing that has not changed is my deep confidence in the leadership of Butler University. President Danko and our Board of Trustees are providing steady and consistent guidance to our campus community during this time, and we can all be very proud of the way Butler is responding with the best interests of our students always in mind. We will share relevant information with you as it develops, but I wanted to be sure you have read President Danko's message from last Thursday. You can read all other campus communications here.

I have been incredibly inspired over the past weeks to witness The Butler Way on full display through the actions of our leaders, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends. I’ve never been more proud to be a Bulldog.
