The University of Arkansas at Little Rock has partnered with Walmart who will help support the UA-Little Rock Trojan Food Pantry as part of their shared commitment to community and fighting hunger. Some of our students rely on the pantry for access to food, and for the next six months, Walmart is helping us as a community in their backyard, to provide much needed food for the pantry.

“This partnership with Walmart is coming at a very critical and trying tie for members of our campus community,” said Mia Phillips, assistant vice chancellor for student affairs. “We are so grateful that Walmart has stepped in to provide support in our time of need. The partnership will be extremely helpful and will increase our ability to serve our campus community by providing additional food for the UA Little Rock community.”

The food pantry, which is run by the UA Little Rock Chancellor's Leadership Corps Scholars Program​, has made an important impact in the UA Little Rock community and serves an average of 100 people, or 25 to 30 families, per month.

Women to Watch at UA Little Rock: Melody Weigel

In this special series for Women’s History Month, UA Little Rock is profiling women leaders who are making a difference at the university.

As president of the UA Little Rock Staff Senate, Melody Weigel, admissions and records specialist for the UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law, is responsible for representing the issues and concerns of staff members at the university.

"I would tell the next generation of female leaders that it’s like my grandma always said, dissent is patriotic. She was always civically engaged. She and my great-aunts told me that you can be respectful while still speaking up and disagreeing. You don’t have to sit in meetings and agree with everyone. You can disagree, but you don’t have to be a jerk about it."
