Warren named dean of health professions at UACCB

The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) has announced the appointment of Rebecca (Becky) Warren as dean of health professions. Warren previously served as the director of adult education at UACCB.

“I am excited to join the team in our nursing and allied health programs and learn more about our current program offerings while looking for growth opportunities,” Warren said. “Working with our community partners has been a large part of my career, and I look forward to working more closely with our healthcare community.”

Warren began her career at UACCB in 2013 as the career and disability services coordinator before moving to the director of workforce and career services position where she developed employer partnerships and oversaw the college’s non-credit community and workforce training programs.

In 2020, she accepted the position of director of adult education where she managed the ESL, GED, and adult basic education programs. She has also served as an adjunct faculty member in the college’s agriculture department.

“I’m elated to add Becky Warren to the Nursing and Allied Health Division. She brings a wealth of experience in developing and implementing student success initiatives, program development, and community engagement,” said Dr. Holly Smith, vice chancellor for academics. “With continued demand for health professionals, the growth and sustainability of our programs is a very high priority. I feel confident in her ability to lead our programs in ways that will best serve our students and healthcare partners.”

Warren began her new role on Aug. 1, 2022.
