About Butler Community College

Butler has embarked on a journey, which places Learning at the heart of our institution. This is the journey of the Learning College, an institution driven by quality and dedicated to engaging its students in learning experiences which expand their minds and spirit. We are driven by the desire to bring out the best in our students.

Established in 1927 in El Dorado, Kansas, Butler now stands as the second largest community college in Kansas, serving more than 13,000 credit students a year through its numerous community-based sites located within a state designated five-county service area, of Butler, Chase, Greenwood, Marion and Morris counties. Building on our rich history of student-centered and teaching-centered values, at any given moment our students are learning at more than six (6) campus locations and approximately 20 additional on-site locations, as well as around the globe online. In addition, Butler works collaboratively with area private and public universities to enhance learning opportunities for South Central Kansas.

Offering one- and two-year degree options, Butler is a comprehensive college with solid transfer programs, life enrichment and noncredit programs, vocational-technical programs, as well as quality corporate services and training. We are a Learning College. Learning is at the heart of what we do.
