Community of C.A.R.E.

In 2009, the term Community of Care was developed to describe Butler University’s encouraging and supportive atmosphere where every person is empowered to engage in healthy behaviors, to support others in doing the same and to look out for one another. Our collective responsibility fosters a strong, healthy and connected community.

The Community of Care concept has evolved into an empowered bystander model, taking on the acronym C.A.R.E. This acronym stands for:

C - Concern

A - Assume responsibility

R - React

E - Evaluate and follow-up
