UACCM Reveals New Logo


The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM) is proud to announce a new collegiate logo for the institution. 

The new logo is the first major rebrand for the college since it joined the University of Arkansas System in 2001.

“This new logo is something our staff has been developing and perfecting for almost a year. We take so much pride in not only our affiliation with the UA System, but also in our rich history in this community,” said UACCM Chancellor Lisa Willenberg.

The logo update and rebranding process was coordinated by UACCM Institutional Advancement after multiple focus group meetings, surveys, and discussions with members of UACCM staff, faculty, and student body. UACCM graphic designer created the new logo, which went through a series of iterations before the final version was selected.

Petit Jean Mountain is prominently featured on the new logo, honoring UACCM’s strong heritage and beginnings as Petit Jean Vocational-Technical School. The mountain aligns with the geographical location of the college, the Timberwolf mascot, and the college’s new tagline: “Elevate Your Horizons.”

2023 marks the 60-year anniversary for UACCM, which began as Petit Jean Vocational-Technical School in 1963. In 1991, as a result of the passing of Act 1244 by the Arkansas General Assembly, the school converted to a technical college, and was renamed Petit Jean Technical College. As the college’s role and scope expanded, its institutional name became Petit Jean College in 1997 to reflect the expansion of options. Just a few years later, in 2001, the college would join the University of Arkansas System and become the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton.

UACCM is observing its 60th year an an institution during the 2023-24 academic year with a series of events and activities, including an upcoming community celebration that will be announced soon.
