Butler University


When you start at Butler, you’ll find a community of classmates and faculty that are committed to your success. In fact, the U.S.News & World Report named Butler among the top schools in the country when it comes to enriched undergraduate offerings that lead to student success. They concluded that Butler is committed to providing all undergrads with “the best possible educational experience.”

Butler University is a liberal arts school with a history of doing things differently. In 1855, attorney and abolitionist Ovid Butler opened a school founded on the principle that everyone deserves an excellent education, regardless of race or gender—a bold idea in pre-Civil-War America.
