Efroymson Diversity Center
Purpose of Efroymson Diversity Center
The Efroymson Diversity Center of Butler University opened on December 6, 2006 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house. The Diversity Center was made possible by a generous gift from Lori Efroymson-Aguilera and the Efroymson Fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation.
The "DC" serves as an open and inclusive symbol to the Butler campus, that fosters contributions of intercultural engagement, support, guidance, and a home to the Butler commuity committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We celebrate the achievements and continued opportunities of faculty, staff, and students in furthering an inclusive campus community.
