We know that a college education is a significant investment for you and your supporters. We want to assure you that we are doing all we can to manage expenses and remain careful stewards of our financial resources. We are squarely focused on providing a high-quality education that meets your needs.

Every year, the largest portion of our budget goes toward attracting and retaining exceptional faculty and staff which translates into high-quality academic programs, distinctive learning opportunities, and life-long relationships between students and professors.

These efforts have been widely recognized, including U.S. News and World Report ranking Butler as the top Midwest Regional University six consecutive years and the Most Innovative School in the Midwest the past nine years. That’s the type of recognition that gets the attention of employers and top graduate schools, and it would not be possible if we weren’t investing in outstanding people. Last year, more than 98 percent of our graduates were employed (with a median starting salary of $59,000) or in graduate school within six months.

We also invest heavily in institutional financial aid; more than 94 percent of our students receive merit, need, and/or talent-based awards. We are committed to making a Butler education accessible to as many students as possible and this increase, just as it does each year, will enable us to provide millions of additional dollars in scholarships next academic year.

Thank you for your continued investment in Butler. We pledge to continue to be transparent and responsible when it comes to your tuition dollars.

Vice President for Finance and Administration
