Butler has been granted reaccreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association.
In a report recommending reaccreditation, commission reviewers affirmed that Butler provides a high-quality education through faculty who are committed teachers focused on student-centered learning and through staff who provide support services that enable students to succeed.
“Reaccreditation recognizes our collective dedication to realizing our mission of providing exceptional liberal arts and professional educational experiences to our students,” said President James M. Danko.
The report also highlighted the obvious pride Butler community members display for the University, a clear commitment to public and community service, and a core curriculum characterized by “a number of distinctive features that reflect current national best practices for general education.”
“While we are pleased that the HLC noted many of Butler’s strengths, we strive for continual improvement,” Danko said. “In response to accreditation team recommendations, Butler will pursue focused institutional improvement initiatives in three areas: diversity, student outcomes assessment, and budgeting and planning. The University is in the process of developing these action plans, in conversation with faculty, staff, and students.”
