Offices

University Development

The Office of University Development raises private gift support for the university to help accomplish its three-fold mission of teaching, research and public service. Private gift support builds the funds that ensure a margin of excellence and quality for faculty, students, academic programs and facilities. Private gift support is key to the university vision of emerging as a nationally competitive, student-centered research university serving Arkansas and the world.

University departments may rent the University House for campus events.

Departments

Central Arkansas Advancement Office

The Central Arkansas Advancement Office was established in response to the university's desire to have a greater presence in the Little Rock area and the robust donor and alumni base located there.

Donor Relations and Special Events

The Office of Donor Relations and Special Events at the University of Arkansas works closely with alumni, friends, and benefactors to recognize and celebrate achievements of excellence. It is through these relationships, as well as those with our campus partners, that we stay connected to promote success on campus, in the state of Arkansas, and beyond.

University Relations

The Office of University Relations supports overall communications initiatives for the university.  We collaborate with communicators in the colleges, schools and units, offering direction and consistency for our communication products.

Arkansas Alumni Association

Often considered a first point-of-contact at the UA, the Arkansas Alumni Association, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to connect alumni, friends and students to the University of Arkansas.  The Association is housed in the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House which is strategically situated on campus across from Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
