What is the JCR?

JCR stands for Junior Common Room – this is the term we use to describe the Undergraduate Student Community at Butler. This term is broad and ecompasses a lot of things because, well, we do a lot of things here at Butler! The unique thing about Butler is that all of our events, and all of our sports, societies, and committees are run by students, for students, through the JCR.

The JCR itself is led by the JCR President and the team of 12 Exec, all of whom are elected into their positions. Within the JCR there are heaps of positions to run for and we host a whole range of sports, socieities and committees.
