President Neupauer


Welcome to Butler County Community College!

I am proud to provide this welcome on our recently updated BC3 website. I am sure you will agree the site is visually pleasing, easy-to-use and showcases our wonderful College in the most positive way.

And we have many, many positives here at Butler County Community College. The most recent was being named Pennsylvania’s top community college by in the fall of 2015. A few weeks before this recognition, BC3 earned Military Friendly School status by Victory Media for a third consecutive year.

Successful accreditations; innovative credit and non-credit programs; community engagement; cultural opportunities; and, above all, a phenomenal faculty, staff, Board of Trustees and BC3 Education Foundation, Inc. are several of the reasons why our College excels.

I often say this is a great time in our country for community colleges. Furthermore, it is a GREAT time to be at Butler County Community College. We thrashed an initial goal of $5.5 million for our Pioneer Proud (major gifts) Campaign. Not only did we receive our College’s first $1 million gift from Mr. Robert Heaton, many other $100,000+ donations were given. Perhaps best of all was an internal giving rate of 82 percent from the College community.  

It should be of little surprise that BC3 earned fantastic results in a 2014 Ruffalo Noel Levitz Student Survey of Engagement and equally impressive data in a 2015 Ruffalo Noel Levitz Campus Climate Survey.  

As you glance through the President's page, understand the content is designed not only for our internal audiences, but for external and media publics, too. I hope you find it informational and helpful. Do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

I hope to see you soon at one of our six beautiful BC3 campus locations.

Pioneer Proud!

Dr. Nicholas C. Neupauer
