UALR is a metropolitan research university that provides accessibility to a quality education through flexible learning and unparalleled opportunities.
“I love to write, and I believe it’s essential for everyone to find their voice.”
Clark Harris originally visited the UALR campus, not for an education, but for a job in custodial services.
When he was advised that a large percentage of his tuition at UALR would be covered, he began to reconsider his path.
“I looked at education as a gateway to doing what I want to do. A lot of my professors have helped me along the way,” Harris said.
Harris, a recent graduate with a degree in English, said his dream is to become a university professor. He is currently pursuing his master’s degree at UALR.
“I love to write, and I believe it’s essential for everyone to find their voice,” he said.
Harris’ educational pursuits have inspired others around him.
After completing his first semester, Harris’ mother enrolled in classes at UALR. And his 13-year-old daughter has now begun researching where she might like to attend school some day.
“It has changed my family, just by me going to school,” said Harris.
Today Harris is a graduate assistant in the UALR Academic Success Center’s reading lab, mentoring students five days a week.
“I love what I do while earning my masters in writing,” he concluded.
