    About University of Central Arkansas

    The mission of the University of Central Arkansas is to maintain the highest academic quality and to ensure that its programs remain current and responsive to the diverse needs of those it serves. A partnership of excellence among students, faculty, and staff in benefit to the global community, the university is committed to the intellectual, social, and personal development of its students; the advancement of knowledge through excellence in teaching and research; and service to the community. As a leader in 21st-century higher education, the University of Central Arkansas is dedicated to intellectual vitality, diversity, and integrity. In carrying out this mission, the university is guided by the following principles: Teaching and learning flourish where disciplinary integrity and the focused explorations it allows are balanced by the connection-building of interdisciplinary collaboration. The search for knowledge entails both interaction and solitary reflection. Students accrue the greatest benefits when they master both trans-disciplinary skills -- such as communication, critical thinking, and information literacy -- and the specific bodies of information and ways of knowing particular to individual disciplines. Individual faculty may employ radically different methods in their teaching, scholarship, and other professional practice and be equally effective. Embracing diversity -- e.g., political, racial, intellectual, cultural -- strengthens and enriches a university. A vital component of a student's experience in the university is the development of personal and social well-being and maturity. A university maintains its viability by sharing the talents and resources of the university with the global community.
