Upcoming Butler Center Events

Did You Know? Information about Resources on Campus

The Butler Center is unveiling a new series entitled ‘Did you know? Information about Resources on Campus’. This is a result of comments at the well-attended and informative sessions we had in 2017-18. Purdue provides a wide variety of resources to faculty to ensure they succeed in doing research, teaching, and engaging with the community. The goal of this series is to share information about campus resources and address inclusivity in ways that can facilitate success of faculty, staff, and students which in turn can contribute to the leadership pipeline.

The Butler Center is unveiling a new series entitled Butler Center Roundtables. The goal is to discuss diversity and inclusion in higher education on campus. The articles may be about faculty careers; challenges faced by faculty of color, graduate education, and issues about inclusion or other similar topics. Butler Center Round Tables aim to disseminate academic research that can enable faculty and department leaders to develop strategies and institutional initiatives that can facilitate the success of faculty, staff, and students and contribute to the leadership pipeline.
