'CLASS' Schedule

The College Council of the College of Education and Health Professions invites faculty, staff and students to attend the COEHP Luncheon Academic Seminar Series, or CLASS.

The College Council initiated the CLASS luncheons to nurture the college's scholarly community, provide a forum in which faculty and staff share their work with peers, and foster future collaborations. Ultimately, these sessions should promote a greater understanding of the diverse ways in which College of Education and Health Professions faculty and staff work toward the shared mission of improving education and health outcomes for Arkansans. The seminars are sponsored by the dean's office and the College Council with lunch provided.

Lunch? Indeed.

Please be advised that all CLASS sessions scheduled for this spring are being rescheduled for the fall 2020 semester, due to the virus crisis.

Please RSVP online for any or all sessions.
