Posted Date - 9/29/20
The U.S. Department of Education approved the fiscal year 2020 Student Support Services (SSS) Program grant application for the TRIO SSS program at the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville. The grant award is anticipated to continue for five years, ending August 31, 2025. 

Student Support Services is a grant program funded by the U.S. Department of Education whose mission is to advance and defend the ideal of equal educational opportunity by helping disadvantaged students overcome economic, social, academic, and cultural barriers to higher education. Students who are low-income, a first-generation college student, or have a documented disability are eligible to join the program. Students must also be a U.S. citizen or national of the U.S., possess the potential and motivation for college success, and demonstrate academic need for support. UACCB TRIO SSS participants are expected to receive a minimum of three project services per semester.

Support services are free to all TRIO SSS participants and include academic advising, career development, tutoring, transfer assistance/advising, computer lab access, technology check-out, workshops, cultural events, and scholarships.

“The staff and I in TRIO are so happy to be refunded for another 5 years,” said Ronda McLelland, Director of TRIO/Student Support Services. “It has been an absolute pleasure to work with UACCB students in achieving their goals in education, and we are excited about being able to provide these wonderful services to UACCB students for another 5 years.”

Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday that he will not renew the statewide mask mandate that expires at midnight tonight; however, school districts, private businesses, and medical facilities may still require patrons to wear masks as a preventative measure against the spread of COVID-19 under the revised guidelines. The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville will maintain mask use and social distancing protocols on campus through the end of the spring semester. During its meeting on Friday, March 19, 2021, the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee discussed the topic of continuing the mask mandate on campus after the statewide mandate expires March 31. Campus constituents, including representatives from the faculty senate, staff senate, Student Government Association and the cabinet were involved in the discussion. It was agreed that continuing to follow mask use and social distancing protocols was in the best interest of the campus community.

 

On Friday, March 26, 2021, the campus reported its fifth straight week of having zero positive self-reported cases of COVID-19 associated with the campus. Our students, faculty, and staff have shown outstanding diligence in wearing face coverings and social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The campus community is asked to continue in its diligence to keep members of campus safe and healthy, not only for the benefit of campus but our community as well.
