The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) Chancellor Search Committee met May 28 to formally begin the process to find a permanent leader to succeed former Chancellor Debbie Frazier, who retired May after a 34-year career in higher education.

The committee, along with UA System Vice President of Development and Planning Chris Thomason, finalized the first step of completing a "position profile" to be used as the chancellor position's official job description. The position profile for the chancellor can be found on the college's chancellor search webpage at The position will be advertised nationally to draw a diverse group of qualified applicants.

"The Chancellor Search Committee is a dedicated group who is looking forward to a robust regional and national search,” said Marietta Candler, chair of the search committee. “The communities and constituents of north central Arkansas are well represented by the search committee and all of its members are extremely dedicated to filling the chancellor position at UACCB with the right person to carry out the mission of the college and serve the interests of the region. I have every confidence that the search committee will fulfill its duty in reviewing candidates based upon merit and will find and recommend the individual who is an absolute fit for the institution and the communities we serve."
