UACCB unveils commemorative logo

The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) is celebrating the 25th anniversary of becoming part of the University of Arkansas system with the introduction of an anniversary logo.

In a media release, UACCB said the anniversary logo calls back to the history of the institution. 

“We take great pride in our roots as Gateway Technical College combined with our time as UACCB as we celebrate nearly 50 years of providing quality education to Independence and the surrounding counties,” said Dr. Brian Shonk,  UACCB chancellor, “As part of our 25th anniversary celebration in the University of Arkansas, we are also paying tribute to the heritage of Gateway Technical College while recognizing our status as UACCB.” 

Regarding the logo in the profile, the top portion is the image used to represent Gateway Technical College for many years. We believe this logo is a good blending of our roots as Gateway and our current identity as UACCB. This new logo will also meet the evolving needs of digital media. 

“We continue to be the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville,” said Shonk. “However, like many other schools, we see the need to have shorter versions of the name. Other schools in the University of Arkansas system have provided shortened names of their institution like University of Arkansas at Batesville, UA Batesville, and UACCB. Depending on the context in which used, one or more of those versions may be most appropriate.” 

The school said more events and activities to celebrate the milestone for October 2022 through May 2023 will be announced later.
