Butte College Archives

BC Archives Mission Statement

The Butte College Archives seeks to establish a permanent record and foster an appreciation of our institutional past and present: the people, places, and events that represent the heart of Butte College.

How We Accomplish Our Mission

The Archives preserves unique institutional knowledge and culture of the Butte College community, including significant events, trends, and dynamics, by identifying, collecting, recording, preserving, and making available personal papers, selective institutional records, artifacts, and photographs that are of enduring historical value.
