Welcome to Butte College!


Butte Welcomes You Not Racism

Butte College is committed to supporting and addressing equity on our campus to ensure our students, faculty, and staff are heard, respected, and included. The campus is engaged in open and honest dialog to better support our students and colleagues of color. While these may be difficult conversations, this dialog is absolutely necessary and we invite you to join us. Learn more at our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion page and consider joining our Diversity Committee

We have provided multiple presentations with our partnership with USC Race and Equity Center, and equity-minded instruction and anti-racist practices from previous guest speakers Dr. Edward Bush, President of Consumnes River College in Sacramento and Dr. Kathy Obear, consultant for Equity, Inclusion & Social Justice. You will have an opportunity to view these two presentations for Flex credit, additional information is forthcoming to the Professional Development website.
