The Butler Academic Plan will guide and plan future academic decisions to ensure that the quality of academic offerings at Butler Community College meet the needs of future students, employers, and the communities it serves. The Academic Plan integrates with the College wide Strategic Priorities and provides a guideline for all areas of academic planning to include: facilities, technology, finance, enrollment management, foundation, institutional research, human resources, faculty and staff development, division and department planning to further drive academic innovation and differentiation.


The Butler Academic Plan will be compiled with input spanning the entire institution. Five steering committees led by deans, advisors, and instructional designers have been organized to gather input from all possible stakeholders to identify: 

  • Alignment with College Strategic Priorities
  • Scale (# of students impacted)
  • Projected results (increased student access, persistence, completion, transfer, employment, learning, etc.) 
  • Evidence of viability (sustainability) 
  • Innovation


  • Provides a blueprint for academic planning
  • Guides strategic initiatives for academic improvement 
  • Provides a framework for resource allocation
  • Provides a guide for new program development
  • Guides facility and technology planning
