The Greater Detroit Butler Community is thinking of our Butler family during these challenging times. Community is more important than ever, and we want to stay connected with you.


We hope that the past few months have made you especially proud to be a Bulldog – from graduate students in Butler’s College of Education creating a guide to help schools reopen, to the continued philanthropic support toward the Butler Beyond campaign, the creation of new experiential learning opportunities for students affected by canceled internships, and current students who’ve created Butler-branded face masks that give back to Butler students through the Emergency Assistance Fund. You can read more inspiring stories here.


Please know that the Greater Detroit Butler Community is busy making plans so we can resume a full range of programs as soon as it is safe to do so again. We encourage you to join our Facebook group to stay in the know. If you have ideas for events you’d like to see our community host, we’d love to hear them – email us at


We hope that you all continue to stay healthy and positive. We look forward to connecting with you again soon!
