Butler was founded in 1855 by abolitionist Ovid Butler. Butler has strong progressive roots. In addition to its opposition to slavery, it was one of the earliest coeducational institutes of higher education. Students at Butler are highly engaged in a diverse campus life – almost one-third join fraternities and sororities, and the men’s basketball team has treated the “mid-major” school to a remarkable run of NCAA tournament appearances in recent years (which makes sense, given Butler’s location in the basketball heartland of Indianapolis).
