Diana Arn, vice chancellor for academic services, will speak at the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton on Wednesday, March 11 as part of the “Talks, Thoughts, and Treats” Speaker Series. The public is invited to attend the free event marking Women’s History Month that will take place at 12:00 PM at the UACCM Student Union.

In 2020, Arn announced her retirement from the position of vice chancellor effective at the end of the spring semester. As she’s concluding her distinguished career, she will speak about her time at UACCM and her military service. She will also speak about her personal story that coincides with an effort among women in higher education to break gender barriers in leadership.  

Arn has 33 years of experience at UACCM, including a recent stint when she served as interim chancellor before the appointment of Chancellor Lisa Willenberg. A U.S. Army veteran, Arn joined the college in July 1987 as a business education instructor. In 2002, she became division chair of humanities, social sciences, and mathematics, then was vice chancellor starting in 2008. She also has notable experience sitting on committees. 

She received her M.S.E. in Business Education at the University of Central Arkansas. Prior to that, she earned a bachelor’s degree at Harding University and an associate degree at Arkansas State University-Beebe.

The event is sponsored by the college’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. A light lunch will be served at the presentation.
