Butte College, established in 1968, is 70 minutes north of Sacramento in the Sierra Nevada foothills with educational facilities in the cities of Chico and Orland. The main campus is a designated wildlife refuge, on 928 acres, which makes Butte one of the largest community college campuses in California.

The college was recognized as a national community college leader in sustainability winning the 2008 National Wildlife Federation's Chill Out Contest: Campus Solutions to Global Warming. The college also won the 2009 National Campus Sustainability Leadership Award.

As a longtime advocate of sustainability, Butte has become the largest solar powered campus in the state of California with more than 45 percent of the campus energized with solar power. The campus will generate all of its own power when the final phase of its solar energy system is installed in May 2011 and will become the nation's first college campus to drop off the power grid.

Butte offers general, transfer education, career and technical skills preparation classes ranging from fire, law enforcement and fish and game warden academies to agriculture, welding, automotive technology and fully-equipped science and nursing academic laboratories. Online and televised courses also are offered.
