Butler Community College plays a significant role in regional economic development. Employers have always turned to Butler as a source for trained workers. By preparing a skilled, qualified local workforce Butler has filled an important need. But increased challenges demanded Butler's role in economic development expand.
Butler is participating in new efforts in economic development to meet new challenges. Beyond instruction and job training for vocational and general education programs; Butler collaborates with government groups and industry partners in response to regional needs. Butler's economic development activities include technical assistance for new and small businesses, expanded programs within high schools, partnerships in economic development activities, and customized training for industries via our Business Education & Training Analysis program.
Butler's workforce and economic development efforts bring our communities together. By combining efforts of the college, local offices of economic development, workforce boards, skilled trade unions, employers and other organizations, we can improve the economic well-being of our communities. This prosperity includes the interests of all businesses, workers and residents in south central Kansas.
Butler's goal is to work with public and private sector partners to provide technical assistance and promote the alignment of priorities, strategies, and resources.
