Online forms: Advance Kansas Application

Advance Kansas is a diversity initiative hosted by Butler Community College for community leaders. Each year, approximately 40 individuals who are committed to pursuing solutions to challenges and opportunities in the community, are chosen to participate in Advance Kansas.

Please complete this online application form if you are interested in participating in the next class session. Class sessions begin each year in January and participants will be notified, provided with additional information, and invoiced for the registration fee in December.

Please be aware that the application form automatically times out after 10 minutes of inactivity. We suggest you eliminate distractions while completing this form to avoid losing your data. The only questions of any length on the application are:

  1. If you volunteer in the community, list organizations in which you are currently active and your role.

  2. Please explain why you want to participate in Advance Kansas.

  3. If you could do one thing to make south central Kansas better, what would it be?

You may want to take a moment and answer these questions in Word or a similar program and then copy and paste your answer into the form when you get to that point.

We recommend that you fill out the Email Receipt information so you will receive an email telling you if your application was successfully received.
