I have often said that “we are proud to be Butler County’s community college.” However, we also understand our role as one of the Commonwealth’s 14 community colleges.
As Pennsylvania’s northwestern most community college, our board and institution as a whole has adopted a regional philosophy. Our success in Cranberry Township, Lawrence and Mercer counties and of course Main Campus, speaks volumes of this approach.

BC3 @ Brockway, which will service Clarion, Clearfield, Jefferson and Elk counties, joins BC3 @ Cranberry, BC3 @ Lawrence Crossing, BC3 @ LindenPointe and BC3 Main Campus.

Two weeks ago, the College Board of Trustees approved a purchase of a 6.15 acre property that is adjacent to the College. The property has long been identified in our Master Planning Process as a key acquisition for the College.
Careful planning and smart business practices make such a purchase a reality.

BC3 student representatives stand with President Neupauer and Senator Joe Scarnati at the PA State Capitol.
I have attended four Lobby Days in Harrisburg on behalf of the Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges. Each year, we talked to local elected officials about the benefit of the Commonwealth’s community colleges as a whole and BC3, of course, specifically.
This year’s event was quite different. Read the rest of this entry »
