On-Campus Resources for Students
Support and Reporting Resources for Sexual Assault, Dating and Domestic Violence, and Stalking
This chart outlines on campus and community resources for survivors of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic and interpersonal violence, and stalking. You will find the name, type, contact information, and availability of each resource. Please see below for more information on community resources.
Regardless of whether a survivor or victim chooses to pursue a criminal complaint or the offense is alleged to have occurred on or off campus, the University will assist victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking and will provide each victim with a written explanation of their rights and options.
Only those University employees who are licensed, professional counselors (e.g., mental health counselors, psychologists) or ordained pastoral counselors are able to maintain complete confidentiality and are not required to provide any information without your consent. Most University employees are required to report names and all details of any incident of sexual violence that has been brought to their attention to the Title IX Coordinator or designated Deputy Title IX Coordinators for further investigation. Before sharing information with a University employee, including faculty, you may want to ask about their reporting obligations and what information they may be required to share. The University will work to protect your privacy by sharing information only with those who need to know.
Counseling and Consultation Services is FREE and CONFIDENTIAL for currently enrolled Butler University students. CCS will provide you with various services and resources.

CCS encourages the campus community to contact the office for a consultation if they are concerned about someone.
All therapy options at CCS are free if you are a student currently enrolled at Butler University. Students are generally able to get an appointment within the week that they call to initiate services. Options include individual therapy, couples/partners therapy (as long as both partners are enrolled at Butler), and group therapy (from general process therapy groups to more structured psychoeducational groups and themed groups).
CCS contracted with a local psychiatrist to provide one day of psychiatric service every other week to Butler students. There is a fee associted with this service.
If for some reason, CCS is not able to provide the appropriate treatment or if someone requires more intensive services, we are available to assist in the referral process to a community provider that can best meet the student’s needs.
Crisis Intervention and Assessment
During business hours, students may present to CCS for crisis intervention and assessment. For emergencies requiring more immediate intervention than meeting with a therapist, students are directed to contact campus police or present to local ER options, some of which are listed on our website.
The Center for Faith and Vocation is a FREE and CONFIDENTIAL resource for students seeking pastoral counseling provided by Rev. Daniel Meyers.

After-Hours The phone number above is listed on the back of all Butler University ID cards. This number can be called 24/7. During non-business hours callers will receive a message listing two resources which are available 24/7: the confidential Julian Center Crisis Line (317-920-9320) or Butler University Police Department (317-940-9396).
Calls to the Julian Center Crisis Line will be handled confidentially by crisis line staff who will assess the callers’ immediate needs and either connect them with a Victim Advocate by phone or provide appropriate support or referral information. Butler students who prefer to work with the Butler University Sexual Assault Response and Prevention Specialist may reach them during business hours, or indicate to the Julian Center advocate that they would like such contact to be made on their behalf.
Since May 2018, the Julian Center has been functioning as a Rape Crisis Center which provides survivors access to an advocate to accompany them to the hospital for a forensic medical exam.
University Police are available to help transport students to the hospital, explain criminal justice system processes and procedures, and take reports for the use in criminal prosecution. Making a report to law enforcement may generate a police report, and, if the survivor or victim wants, will lead to a police investigation and may result in criminal charges being filed.
