The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) is a public community college located in Batesville, Arkansas. It is an accredited two-year university offering various Associates of Arts and Associates of Science degrees.
In 1991, the facility was organized as Gateway Technical College, offering courses in electrician and mechanical fields. In 1997, the University of Arkansas system absorbed Gateway, and a few months later re-christened it as the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB), offering both vocational courses as well as courses towards associate degrees and college courses toward "core" requirements at four-year schools.
In the years since its reorganization, UACCB has undergone several campus renovations. The first major renovation, completed in 1999, added an 11,000-square-foot (1,000 m2) Arts and Sciences building, as well as various landscaping and parking additions. The next phase of construction, completed in 2001, added a 37,000-square-foot (3,400 m2) auditorium and conference facility named Independence Hall (after Independence County, of which Batesville is the county seat). In 2002, the College acquired adjacent 24 acres (97,000 m2) of unimproved land and constructed a 14,000-square-foot (1,300 m2) Physical Plant.
Ground was broken in early 2010 for a new facility for Nursing and Allied Health.
