Classes at the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) will return to campus for in-person learning during the 2021 spring semester.
White River Now’s Chad Whiteaker spoke with Dr. Brian Shonk (pictured above, right), vice chancellor for academic affairs at UACCB, and Zach Perrine (pictured above, left), vice chancellor for student affairs at UACCB, about the school’s decision to return to on-campus learning.
Shonk and Perrine told Whiteaker the best case for learning is to have all students with faculty, in-person for every class session. During the fall, UACCB found a way to utilize other parts of their facilities to facilitate getting students back on campus for every class in the spring. Plus social distancing and mask-wearing will be required.
