University of Arkansas System

The University of Arkansas System includes the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, the University of Arkansas at Monticello, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, the Division of Agriculture, the Arkansas Archeological Survey, and the University of Arkansas System Office in Little Rock.

The University of Arkansas was established with the Federal Land Grant Act in March, 1871. Eight years later, the University of Arkansas Department of Medicine was founded. In 1956 the present facility, known as the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, was dedicated. The University of Arkansas System was created in 1969 with the merger of the University of Arkansas and Little Rock University, the latter being known as the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR). Later mergers added Arkansas Agricultural and Mechanical College in 1971, as the University of Arkansas at Monticello and Arkansas Agricultural, Mechanical, and Normal College in 1972, as the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.
