Transparency on Revenue, Expenditures & Butler County Mill Levies

It's important to understand where your money goes. From 2009-2016, Butler Community College's mill levy remained at 18.063. In 2016, Butler increased its taxes to 20 mills. This was done to support a Digital Transformation Capital Outlay project. In three years, the increase sunsets and the college's mill levy will revert back to the original 18.063.

Message From the President

Dr. Kim Krull, PhD2018 Finished Strong

 Butler Community College is excited to once again bring you a newsletter that provides a glimpse into our college – your community college. Butler is a thriving institution that each day focuses on its mission to help students become responsible, involved lifelong learners and, as an institution, to contribute to the vitality of the communities we serve. Not only is Butler educating 18-year-olds, but we are educating parents and grandparents, helping them further themselves through education.


In 2018, Butler’s livestock judging team had three of the 15 All-Americans named from teams across the nation. We joined forces through articulation agreements with Friends University in cyber security and WSU in business and engineering to create pathways for our students. We also introduced an unmanned aircraft systems major in conjunction with Kansas State Polytechnic. We’ve had a number of faculty and staff present at national conferences, hosted numerous regional conferences and for the second year hosted the Great Plains Conference on Acceleration with a focus on increasing student success toward college degrees. In addition, Butler’s math curriculum redesign was recognized at both the national level with the American Association of Community Colleges and locally with the 2018 Innovation and Enterprise Award from the Wichita Business Journal. The redesign has shown 15-20% increases in math course student success along with a 10% decrease in student withdrawals from those courses. With supporting funds from Goebel Family Star Lumber Foundation, Butler’s Hospitality and Culinary Arts students, faculty, administrators, staff and volunteers prepared and delivered Thanksgiving Dinner to more than 150 firefighters in 24 fire stations in Butler County and Wichita.


This year, with the help of our Board of Trustees and leaders from our local communities, the college launched Butler for Butler, a visioning process led by local community members. I’m grateful to everyone who participated in our visioning sessions and greatly appreciate the time and thought given to the process. In this issue, you’ll learn more about Butler for Butler, read some of the latest Butler news and review our 2017-18 Appreciation Report.


Thank you again for supporting students and helping us make a difference in our students’ lives.


With best wishes,


Kimberly W. Krull, Ph.D.
