Sustainability at Butler
Universities can—and should—be at the forefront of exploring innovative solutions to balancing environmental conservation, social equity, and fiscal responsibility, propelling research into action while educating the next generation of change agents. Butler acknowledges its moral and educational role in inspiring change agents through innovative projects while also recognizing the benefits of this leadership to institutional efficiency and operational cost savings. In fact, it’s the Butler Way.
