Office of Development

The Office of Development for the College of Education and Health Professions works to secure gifts and private support to assist the college in achieving continued growth and academic excellence.  The University of Arkansas offers three avenues for philanthropy: student support, faculty support and program support.  Individuals and groups can establish a scholarship and make gifts to the college or to a particular department in the form of cash, securities, corporate matching gifts, real estate and personal property.  Our development professionals are here to help you find the most productive and meaningful way of assisting our students, faculty and programs. 

We look forward to assisting you with any questions you might have.  We also thank you for your support of our college.
