Alumni Relations & Engagement

Our alumni may live in all 50 states and in over 79 countries around the world, but they'll always call BU home. We're immensely proud of our alumni and how they continue to carry the Butler Way on to the next chapter of their life after BU.


The Butler University Alumni Association and the Alumni Communities across the nation plan lots of events throughout the year for alumni of all ages, both on campus and in your local city.

Life After BU

Butler is a lifelong resource for its alumni. Check out our FAQs, career and general alumni services,  news, Butler spiritwear, and more!


Are you interested in joining the alumni community in your city, one of the special interest alumni groups, or serving on one of our two alumni boards? Check out all the ways to connect with your fellow Bulldogs in your own city!

Get Involved

Part of The Butler Way is putting the team above self. If you're looking for a way to volunteer your time or talent to Butler, this is your resource. Opportunities exist both locally and across the country.
