The associate vice chancellor for finance at UA Little Rock is responsible for the administration of the university’s financial operations and reports to Steve McClellan, vice chancellor for finance and administration.
Morrison previously worked as the vice president for business affairs at Texas A&M University-San Antonio and as the vice chancellor for finance and administration at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith. Morrison held several administrative positions at Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, including controller, associate vice president for finance/director of financial services, and vice president for finance.
