Academic Affairs

Arkansas Tech University "a student-centered university of choice". This is both our vision and goal. More than one hundred years of academic excellence, which began as the Second District Agricultural School in 1909, has evolved into a comprehensive, regional, state-supported SREB level three institution. In addition to the institutional accreditation of The Higher Learning Commission, Tech possesses numerous program accreditations, and our goal is to have each program for which there is an accrediting body achieve that accreditation. Other academic initiatives include continuing improvement of retention and graduation rates, ongoing and comprehensive program assessment, elevating distance education efforts, and increasing opportunities for faculty and staff development.
