Health Promotion actively seeks to educate and empower students to make informed choices that positively impact personal wellness and the wellness of the greater community.

Sexual Assault Prevention
As part of Butler’s comprehensive approach to ending sexual violence on campus, some educational offerings are tailored to meet the needs of specific populations, and other offerings are shared with the entire campus. All campus residences offer prevention programming and in-hall exhibits of trending topics including healthy relationships, consent, and bystander intervention. Ongoing training is offered through Health Promotion, Counseling and Consultation Services and the Butler University Police Department to students, faculty, and staff by request.
