About Us

The Desmond Tutu Center is a 5-year joint partnership between Butler University and the Christian Theological Seminary launched to promote the legacy of Archbishop Tutu in Indianapolis, Indiana. With the last year upon us, we are working with our academic and community partners to ensure that the work continues so that the legacy of the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Desmond Tutu, lives on in Indianapolis to create a more peaceful and reconciled community.

Desmond Tutu

Nobel Peace Prize awardee Desmond Tutu is a renowned South African Anglican cleric known for his staunch opposition to the policies of apartheid. Despite bloody violations committed against the black population in South Africa during Apartheid, Tutu adhered to his nonviolent line. Since, he has emerged as a global voice for peace, reconciliation and social justice.

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” 
 Desmond Tutu
