Central Indiana Community

Welcome to the Central Indiana Community!

Whether you are one of the more than 15,000 alumni living in the greater Indianapolis area or a local friend of Butler, we hope to connect with you. Through our events, service, and our steering committee, we’re combining efforts to keep our ties and University strong.
