Campus Health Care
UACCB does not have an on-campus health-care clinic; therefore, it does not provide health-care service to its students, faculty, or staff. It is the policy of the College to encourage individuals with healthcare needs to seek out available area agencies and/or the individual’s personal physician.
No housing facilities are provided by UACCB.
Medical and/or accident insurance is the responsibility of the student.
UACCB strives to provide a safe and secure environment for students, faculty, staff, and guests. Students are encouraged to report crimes or suspicious activity to the campus security or the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Employees of the college are responsible for calling outside assistance if deemed necessary. UACCB contracts with a private security firm to provide security officers on the campus. An important component of security on campus is student behavior. Students are expected to comply with the standards of conduct published in the UACCB Student Handbook, which is provided on the UACCB website and in print upon request.
The Director of Events prepares an annual crime report in compliance with the Jeanne Cleary Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. The full text of this report can be located on the UACCB website at www.uaccb.edu/security.html. This report is prepared in cooperation with local law enforcement agencies, the Administrative Cabinet, and the Office of Campus Events and Security. Each entity provides updated information concerning criminal offenses, the campus Crisis Plan, incident reports, and educational efforts and programs to comply with the Act. Campus crime, arrest, and referral statistics include those reported to designated campus officials and local law enforcement agencies are included in the report.
Each year, an email notification which provides the website to access this report is sent to all enrolled students, faculty and staff. Copies of the report may also be obtained in the Office of Events and Security.

Campus Tobacco Policy
UACCB acknowledges and supports the findings of the surgeon general that tobacco use in any form, active and passive, is a significant health hazard. UACCB further recognizes that environmental tobacco smoke has been classified as a Class-A carcinogen. In light of these health risks, and in support of a safe and healthy learning and working environment, UACCB has set the following 100 percent tobacco-free campus policy which was implemented on August 1, 2010. All colleges and universities in Arkansas were mandated to be smoke free by the Clean Air on Campus Act of 2009. For additional information, refer to the UACCB Policy 235.1.
