Welcome to the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence

As the Susan Bulkeley Butler Chair for Leadership Excellence and the Director of the Butler Center, I am delighted to welcome you to our Center’s website and to the many events, awards, and research activities that we offer and co-sponsor. Our goals are designing conversations across campus and higher education that advance women’s leadership and create more inclusionary spaces (see links to Mission and Vision). Consistent with Susan Bulkeley Butler’s vision, we have had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of women and men at our annual Conference for Pretenure Women. Our Distinguished Women Scholars and Leadership in Action Awards highlight the remarkable academic careers of Purdue alumnae and unique contributions of current faculty, staff, and students in making Purdue a better place. The Butler Center hosts Purdue Women Lead, Purdue Women’s Network, the Violet Haas Award, and Purdue Faculty Scholars, amongst other awards, events, and co-sponsorships. I invite you to participate in the Butler Center and think of us as a way of networking and developing leadership excellence.
