You can still impact Butler students!
Career and Professional Success

Our mission is simple: help Butler students and graduates in their professional development. We support all Bulldogs in their search for internships, jobs, grad school admission, service opportunities, and more, providing guidance as they work toward building fulfilling lives. (With healthy incomes.) The Office of Career and Professional Success (CaPS) provides this assistance to all students and graduates—from all colleges, majors, and classes—for free. For life.

Featured CaPS Initiatives

Your donation helps us grow our CaPS Student Success Fund, money used to subsidize student travel and registration for professional conferences and career fairs, as well as stipends for students in financial need working in lower-paid internships with community service organizations. Your gift helps us fund our new self-service CaPS Headshot Booth, an on-campus installation allowing all students and graduates to take professional headshots anytime, for free. And, you’ll be supporting our CaPS Career Mentors, retired Indy executives we connect with business students. We thank you in advance for any support you can give!

Chicago Trek Challenge
Leaders of the Chicago Butler Community have come together to support the Chicago Trek. The Chicago Trek is an opportunity for students to network with Butler alumni and employers. The goal of the program is to introduce students to Chicago and the benefits of living and working in the country’s third-largest city all while introducing students to internship and career opportunities within the city. Chicago Butler Community members will match your gifts to the Chicago Trek Fund up to $2,000. Once our challenge is complete, we will support 4 students' ability to attend the Chicago Trek.

Detroit Trek Challenge
Support career exploration opportunities in Detroit! Since 2018, Butler students have traveled to Detroit over Fall Break to network with alumni and employers and learn about internship and career opportunities in the Motor City. Along with tours of companies where Butler alumni work or have contacts, students also participate in networking events with alumni in the area, allowing them an opportunity to hear about what it’s like to live and work in the city directly from fellow Bulldogs! These Detroit Treks have been made possible through donations from local alumni. Leaders of the Greater Detroit Butler Community will match your donations to the Detroit Trek Fund dollar-for-dollar up to $3,000 – doubling your impact! Our goal is to raise $6,000, covering the cost of the entire 2022 Detroit Trek for 10 Butler students.
