UALR is an anchor institution for the city of Little Rock and the State of Arkansas—a public university committed to providing convenient, high-quality educational opportunities to our students while helping move Arkansas forward.

We are building the university our city and state need—grounded in the capital city and global in reach.

UALR serves talented and diverse students. We offer a broad range of academic programs, including a comprehensive set of undergraduate majors, graduate certificates, master’s degrees, doctorates, and a law degree.

Alumni will tell you that, in addition to acquiring new knowledge in your chosen discipline, your experience at UALR will strengthen your critical thinking and problem-solving skills, better preparing you to pursue graduate studies or career opportunities.

The university also plays a critical role in advancing Arkansas’s future.
