Preparing Graduates to Teach, Lead, and Innovate

The School of Education at UA Little Rock is committed to educating students to become teachers who meet the needs of diverse communities. Our innovative programs help learners develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to enhance K-12 education, higher education, and educational leadership. As a graduate of the School of Education, you will be prepared to effectively and compassionately teach. A good teacher has the chance to change the lives of their students, but also to help them co-create a pathway to limitless possibilities and opportunities.

Forward Arkansas

We are committed to increasing the quantity, quality, and diversity of the state’s teacher workforce. A recent grant from Forward Arkansas will enable the School to work with expert national partners in a multi-year collaborative program to recruit, train, and retain K-12 teachers in Arkansas. This includes providing our students with paid residencies where teaching candidates will spend one year working with a partner school. Candidates will also receive support from a site coordinator in addition to their mentor teacher. The residency program will begin during the fall 2023 semester. These collaborative partnerships will help UA Little Rock better understand the changing needs of K-12 students as the program evolves.
