Conduct Research Through the Butler Summer Institute

The Butler Summer Institute (BSI) is the university’s preeminent undergraduate research program designed to allow a student to pursue a significant research question, contribute to a scholarly conversation, or produce creative work. Students are mentored by a faculty member and supported by a community of equally enthusiastic student researchers and artists. Visit the Butler Summer Institute website for more information.
