Arkansas is no longer isolated -- its boundaries now extend around the world as national and international forces profoundly affect life in our state.
When the Land Grant Colleges were formed in 1862 and 1890, they were called "people's colleges" because they provided practical education for a broad spectrum of people. This included a commitment to teaching people information about particular technical subjects, as well as the leadership and organizational skills to get things done in their communities and improve their quality of life.
Our commitment to these worthy goals continues today through leadership programs, resources, and tools that enhance the leadership abilities of residents throughout Arkansas.
