Faculty, Staff, and Student Requirements
The U.S. Government controls exports of sensitive equipment, software, and technology as a means to promote our national security interests and foreign policy objectives. UALR has instituted several export controls practices in order to meet these rules, regulations, and findings, and to remain in compliance with federal objectives. Faculty, staff, and students are required to follow these institutional policies when working, on travel, or in any instance regarding university equipment, intellectual property, or other aspect required under the applicable controls.
Please see the Export Controls website for more information about requirements and procedures before leaving the country.
