UALR is undergoing a restructuring of both its academic and administrative units. The new structures reduce the number of vice chancellors from seven to four and reconfigure the academic colleges from six to five. Ultimately, the new structures facilitate a culture of student success through grouping like-units to increase collaboration, improve efficiency, and enhance effectiveness in order to help students progress to graduation.
The strategic plan is a vision to propel the University of Arkansas at Little Rock into the future as a powerhouse university in the capital city. These planning endeavors are intended to improve the stewardship of UALR and to increase the success in accomplishing the university’s noble goals.
The state needs to move forward at a faster pace if its residents are going to maintain, much less improve, their standard of living in the intensely competitive global economy of the 21st Century. UALR is committed to helping Arkansas advance at a faster rate through the university’s instructional, research, and public service programs. The development of UALR, therefore, must be put in fast-forward mode.
