Addressing Sexual Misconduct The Butler Way
Butler University was founded on the principle that everyone deserves an education, regardless of race or gender. This principle continues to be central to our campus mission today, and informs our work in preventing and responding to sexual misconduct.
Sexual misconduct includes sex- and gender-based discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. If you are interested in helping prevent sexual misconduct at Butler, there are many ways to get involved.
