Board approves agreement to provide MICT training at Butler


Beginning January 2008, Cowley College will provide MICT training at Butler Community College’s Andover campus. The Board of Trustees approved the agreement during its regular monthly meeting Monday night.

Butler will provide the classroom space and equipment, while Cowley will handle the instruction and grant the degree.

“I think it is a great partnership because we will be able to take a high dollar degree program into Butler County that they currently don’t have and be able to serve the students of Butler County right on site,” Cowley College Vice President of Student and Academic Affairs Sheree Utash said. “It is a perfect example of how we need to be collaborating together with the institutions to create opportunities for the students.”
