UACCB offering in-person learning for fall 2020
UACCB is preparing to welcome students to campus for the 2020 fall semester under the direction of the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees, and with the guidance of the Center for Disease Control, the Arkansas Department of Health and the Arkansas Department of Education. In-person learning will begin on August 19.
Course instruction will utilize a modified format that combines the flexibility and safety of remote learning with the personal connections of in-person classes. The modified format allows faculty to maximize instructional time while limiting the number of students on campus to abide by current public health guidance. Student support offices, like tutoring, financial aid, and testing, will also adhere to the guidelines while maintaining services.
UACCB established a workgroup to review and provide recommendations to maintain social distancing across campus for students, faculty and staff. Face coverings will be required for anyone attending classes, conducting business or visiting campus as directed by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson. UACCB students, faculty and staff are reminded that by Modeling A Simple Kindness (M.A.S.K), we can help ensure the safety of our campus community.
As in the past, certain courses or programs of study may require different methods of student engagement. Although students may be required to participate in courses differently, personal safety will remain a priority. Specific program details will be provided to students prior to classes starting if applicable.
All first-time UACCB students will have the opportunity to attend a new student orientation. During this time, students will receive instructions to access course information that will be available on August 12.
UACCB will make every effort to continue in the format described above; however, if conditions change and it becomes necessary to adjust, the college is prepared to modify course delivery methods to complete the semester. In the spring 2020, UACCB students and faculty responded to adversity and demonstrated their commitment to completion with an 89% student success rate; up 3% over the previous spring.
