I’ve been granted an exemption from the vaccination requirement, but fear that I will be ridiculed by others for not getting vaccinated. How will Butler handle this?

Given recent guidance from the CDC that everyone–including vaccinated individuals—wear masks indoors, no one should assume that an individual is unvaccinated simply because they are wearing a mask. Thus, unless you reveal that you are unvaccinated, it is unlikely that others will know your vaccination status. Nevertheless, should you become the target of ridicule or criticism due to your vaccination status or any other reason, please report the incident to the University. Butler insists that everyone respect the individual choices that we all must make as we each navigate the pandemic to the best of our abilities. Individuals who disrespect others for their choices regarding vaccination, face coverings, or any other reason will be subject to discipline by the University.

Is the Office of Sexual Assault and Response Prevention accessible? (added 8/17)

Yes. Jules Grable, the SARP specialist, is taking scheduled, in-person appointments during office hours of Monday–Friday, 8:00 AM–5:00 PM. Alternatively, she can be reached at 317-910-5572 or jearthur@butler.edu. For more information, please visit the SARP website.

How is the Center for Faith and Vocation available to support students? (added 8/17)

The Center for Faith and Vocation has built a CFV Canvas Page which houses four different modules for online engagement. First, we have developed a “Virtual CFV Open House” of the CFV Communities that includes information about each faith and secular group, videos from student leaders, and details about how to sign up or connect to call-out gatherings. Second, the CFV has also designed online Vocational Reflection Modules for students, faculty, and staff to reflect on values, decision-making, finding mentors, and telling your vocational story, all of which are vocational skills that may be impacted by the pandemic and designed for self-paced online reflection. Third, we are holding Meditation Sessions over Zoom on Thursdays at noon for any Butler community members. And lastly, the CFV Interfaith Council is currently being advertised for student applications. All of this content, relevant Zoom links, and applications are available in the CFV Canvas Page. Click the link, enroll, and explore the modules.

The Center for Faith and Vocation has also developed a Spiritual Care Conversation resource. Members of the Butler community can click a link to request a Spiritual Care Conversation with CFV staff and advisors from various traditions and backgrounds who are available for care and support. These conversations are private or confidential.
