Efroymson Diversity Center
Purpose of Efroymson Diversity Center
The Efroymson Diversity Center of Butler University opened on December 6, 2006 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house. The Diversity Center was made possible by a generous gift from Lori Efroymson-Aguilera and the Efroymson Fund of Central Indiana Community Foundation.
The Diversity Center serves as an open and inclusive symbol to the Butler campus that fosters contributions of intercultural engagement, support, guidance, and a home to the Butler community committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We celebrate the achievements and continued opportunities of students, staff, and faculty in furthering an inclusive campus community.
The Diversity Center is located in the garden level of Atherton Union (Atherton, room 004) which houses the Department of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion within the Division of Student Affairs.
The Diversity Center provides office space for the following cultural and social awareness student organizations:
- Asian & Pacific Islander Alliance (APIA)
- Black Student Union (BSU)
- Students for Justice in Palestine
- Butler Alliance
The Diversity Center also provides a prayer/meditation space, with gender neutral restrooms and lounge/study space for all Butler students.
