Workshops

SSWS Logo

Student Support Services staff facilitate and/or coordinate various workshops that are offered to assist SSS students as they earn a bachelor’s degree. These workshops may also help prepare students for their future careers and/or graduate school goals. Workshops range in topics and include, but are not limited to: academic success strategies; financial and economic literacy; study abroad options and processes; graduate school application processes and funding options; and career preparation. SSS Staff also collaborate with other offices on campus to ensure SSS students can take advantage of a wide variety of UA Little Rock opportunities.

While some of our workshops are only available to SSS students, most are also open to UA Little Rock students at-large. Those open only to SSS students will be clearly marked on the calendar. For workshops with limited space, SSS students will be given priority seating.
