#StaffSpotlight: Chancellor Lisa R. Willenberg

#StaffSpotlight, Lisa R. Willenburg, Chancellor

This month, we are spotlighting our fearless leader: Chancellor Lisa R. Willenberg! 

Chancellor Willenberg has been at UACCM for almost 30 years. Since she began working at UACCM – previously named Petit Jean Technical College – she has held several positions including accountant, accounting supervisor, adjunct instructor, controller, vice chancellor for finance, vice chancellor for finance and operations, and most recently, chancellor.

Why should students choose UACCM?

Because UACCM has the absolute best faculty and staff who put students first.

What is your favorite part about working at UACCM?

The students and employees; so many great success stories made and relationships formed. It's like one big family!

What are your favorite things to do when you’re not at UACCM?

My new favorite activity is spoiling my granddaughter, Tessa. So far, I have one grandchild with another on the way in July. Grandparenthood is life-altering in the best way possible! Our family loves the Razorbacks and I plan to be a Roadhog when I retire. We also enjoy boating, camping, and kayaking; anything on the water!

What should UACCM students know?

Strongly consider taking a career assessment if you're not absolutely certain what you'd like to major in. If you choose a career doing something you love, it's not nearly as much like work.

I also highly recommend all students ask questions, lots of them. There is no way you can possibly have all the answers. College can be complex. And remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question. 

Any other comments?

I'm so blessed and thankful! I love my job and all the students, faculty, and staff at UACCM. We have such a great thing going and an incredibly important support system. Changing lives is what we do best!
