    Dr. Butchey has contributed significantly to FIU’s initiatives to engage the community in mutually beneficial ways. She is the recipient of FIU’s prestigious 2020 Faculty Award for Excellence in Service. Through course work and leadership of students organizations she has implemented service learning projects where student groups teach financial literacy skills to FIU students, high school students, recent immigrants and newcomers to South Florida and other disenfranchised residents through various community centers (including the Chapman Community Partnership for Homeless), high schools, libraries, and religious organizations. For this project she has been honored with the 2013 “Spirit of Service-Learning Award” awarded by the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of South Florida Inc. (RPCVSF), the Miami-Dade Teacher of the Year Coalition, and the Armando Alejandre Jr. Foundation. This award recognizes and honors K-12 and college/university educators each year for contributing to the integration of service into the curriculum and for making a commitment to connect students through service to help meet critical needs in South Florida and/or the global community.

    Her motivation is to ensure that students at FIU’s College of Business will not only improve their knowledge, skills and attitudes, but also follow in the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi and, "be the change you want to see in the world".
