From the Interim Vice President
Welcome to the University of Arkansas System's Division of Agriculture.
We are proud to be among the 20 entities that belong to University of Arkansas System. We are even more proud to be the only institution of higher education with staff in all 75 of Arkansas' counties, as well as faculty and staff at three campuses: UA-Fayetteville, UA-Monticello and Arkansas State University.
The Division of Agriculture was created in 1959 to carry out two of the three traditional land grant missions: extension and research. Our research arm is the Arkansas Agricultural Experiment Station. The Arkansas Cooperative Extension Serviceis our outreach arm.
Between the two, we work to fulfill our mission: We strengthen agriculture, communities, and families by connecting trusted research to the adoption of best practices. Watch our video to learn more.
We are a higher education entity that is unique within Arkansas. We have a diverse faculty with equally diverse disciplines and focuses. When we looked at the big picture, we discovered a unity in our diversity.
Integrity. Collaboration. Accountability. Relevance. Excellence.
It was and is our values as dedicated researchers and educators. These are the qualities we believe giving meaning and importance to what we do for our fellow Arkansas.
Our brand promise
Our brand promise followed the values -- We serve with a zeal to help others. We are committed to service. We are committed to serving the individuals, families, communities and businesses that are part of our lives.
Put together, we remember it this way:
Yours in service,
