The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton is one of the best two-year colleges in the state, according to readers of Arkansas Money & Politics.

The selection was part of the magazine’s “Best of 2020” feature that highlights prominent companies and institutions in Arkansas. Readers nominated UACCM as one of the best in the community colleges category.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, UACCM’s fall 2020 enrollment grew due to enhanced interest in the college’s transfer degrees. The pandemic’s effect on the economy also contributed to enrollment in technical education programs, as many individuals have been dislocated from their jobs or decided to gain more skills to enhance their income mobility.

When the public health care crisis began, UACCM created flexibility in scheduling various modes of instructional delivery. First, the college had to quickly adapt to online instruction in March with less than two weeks’ notice. For the fall 2020 semester, students could choose a number of attendance methods, including in-person, online, synchronous (live virtual delivery), and a hybrid blend. Many students enjoyed the ability to select which type of class to attend on a weekly basis.

In recent years, UACCM has also opened the Workforce Training Center, a 54,000 square-foot facility that houses air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration technology; automotive service technology; industrial mechanics and maintenance technology; and welding technology.
