Arkansas Global Programs

Arkansas Global Programs

The mission of Arkansas Global Programs is to facilitate positive, productive, and peaceful international relations between the U.S. and other countries through global education and exchange focused on education, business, government, and the arts. It seeks to put its program participants and partners on a path to intercultural understanding, respect, and long-term ties through expert training and mentoring; as well as international travel with in-depth, hands-on experiences, and personal interaction with people in other countries.

Participants include: policy makers, institutional directors, university faculty and program heads, entrepreneurs, teachers, professionals, and students of all levels. All of these are expected to share what they learn with their colleagues, families, friends, students, and communities. In addition, they are required to develop and implement action plans related to the goals and objectives of their programs.

Arkansas Global Programs achieves its goals with the assistance of professional partners at the local, state, and national level, in the U.S. and abroad. These include: universities, businesses, government offices, and nonprofit organizations, and expert consultants.

Some institutional partners are: UALR colleges, departments and programs; William J. Clinton Presidential Library, Museum, and School for Public Service; Heifer Project International; Arkansas State Heritage Department; Chengdu Municipality Bureau of Culture; Sichuan University, Chengdu, China; Bhutan Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Thimphu, Bhutan; and Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara, Mexico.

Arkansas Global Programs is supported through the generosity and vision of private foundations and government agencies. Among these are the Freeman Foundation, Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation, and U.S. Department of State.
