Our faculty have been recruited from benchmark institutions to collaborate with veteran faculty members on research to improve student achievement as well as the health of the public. These faculty members work closely with students, using advanced technology found in the college's classrooms and through online delivery. Our students are involved in research and become leaders in education, nursing, communication disorder, health sciences and human resource development.
Our graduates teach children from preschool through college, help deliver babies and provide care and comfort to the elderly. They direct recreational programs that boost health and rejuvenate the spirit, and they help those who have lost the power of speech to regain it.
The college is the second largest college at the UofA with the largest graduate enrollment and is committed to fulfilling the university's mission as a nationally competitive, student-centered research university serving Arkansas and the world.
