Since the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) conversion to an institution of higher education, the faculty, staff, and trustees have worked diligently to fulfill its mission of expanded service. New courses and programs of study have been added throughout the Industrial Technologies, Health Occupations, Business, and General Education curricula.
Renovation and expansion of the campus have also been an important part of the UACCB mission. Phase I construction was completed in the summer of 1999 and drastically changed the appearance of the campus. This phase included an 11,000-square-foot Arts and Sciences Building, main entrance signs, an arcade on the Main Classroom Building, landscaping, additional parking lots and campus infrastructure.
Phase II of the construction program was completed in the spring of 2001. The cornerstone to Phase II is Independence Hall, a 37,375-square-foot Conference/Student Center. In 2002, the College invested in the utility infrastructure on the newly acquired 25 acres east of the original campus property, connected the properties with a traffic bridge and constructed a new 14,000-square-foot consolidated Plant Maintenance Facility and over the summer the former Business and Community Outreach building was renovated and now houses the Adult Education Center. The renovation of the building brought it in line with the campus motif and provided an added 1000 square feet to the structure. UACCB has a bright future and will strive to provide even greater educational opportunities for the citizens it serves.
