Welcome to Arkansas State University!
+ Campus alert: A-State Closed Jan. 16

A-State Closed on Jan. 16 due to winter precipitation.

Arkansas State University is closed today, Tuesday, Jan. 16, due to winter precipitation. All winter response staff members are requested to report to their duty stations.

Overnight, snow fall made conditions for students, faculty and staff hazardous.

"Our administrative team determined the snowfall was going to be heavier than forecast and while today was scheduled to be the first day of class for the spring 2018 semester, I've decided it is best that we cancel classes for today," Chancellor Kelly Damphousse said.

All classes at the Jonesboro and Paragould locations are cancelled. Online classes continue.

While offices and classes are closed, university residential life areas continue to operate to support the on-campus student population.

Unit and Program Assessment


Unit assessment is a continuous process that underlies all excellent programs of teaching and learning. The Unit has designed the Teacher Education Assessment Management System (TEAMS) as a systematic process for determining the extent to which the initial and the advanced programs address the outcomes of the conceptual framework(s). Internal and external program assessment data are collected in order to help evaluate the work of the Unit. The goal is to direct improvement efforts in order to ensure program quality.
