Embracing the past, Imagining the future

We’re in the heart of the Mid-South with roots in the rich cultural mix of the Delta. We honor our past while looking to the future. We enjoy our central location but look to the world. We take pride in the diversity of our faculty, staff and students, while taking time to value each individual. We are a work in progress that’s been a century in the making.

Marking its first hundred years, Arkansas State University continues to expand in exciting ways. It’s growing to serve the region, state and nation – with a global perspective. By providing a solid educational base, the university prepares students for leadership as professionals and in their communities.
