An important message from Chancellor Christina Drale:

Dear Campus Community,

As many of you know, recent legislative activity in Arkansas has caused a great deal of concern and distress among transgender individuals and their families in our state. UA Little Rock as well as many other institutions of higher education have worked to inform and educate legislators about the unnecessary and harmful impacts of individual bills. While the final resolution of this legislation will likely take place in the courts over an extended period of time, I want to make it clear that UA Little Rock is an institution dedicated to providing an inclusive learning and working environment where everyone is valued and respected and everyone has the support to operate authentically in their identity.

To the members of our campus community who identify as transgender, I know that you are feeling very discouraged at this time. Please know that we are glad that you are here and that your well-being and success matter to us. Our purpose as an institution is to serve the needs of our state through education, research, and public service. It is vital that we not leave anyone behind in this important work. We are always stronger when we work together.

A message from Chancellor Christina S. Drale:

Trojan Family,

This is a difficult time for our country as we struggle with the harmful effects of racism. We grieve with the families of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and so many others. I want you to know that UA Little Rock stands against racism and hate and stands with those who support social justice and equality.

As an institution, we are not immune to issues of inequity and intolerance. Particularly with regard to issues of race and ethnicity, we have not done enough. While we still have much room for improvement, we are committed to doing the work that is required of us to ensure we provide members of our campus community with the space and support to operate authentically in their identity, free from harassment and disrespect.

I know there are members of our campus community, especially those who identify as African American, who are in great pain at this time as you struggle to process this latest tragedy, while navigating the enduring systems of discrimination that you face in your day-to-day life. We want you to know that you have a place at UA Little Rock, and it is important that we continue to work together to ensure the safety and well-being of every member of our campus community. We are here for you and we care for you. You matter.

I am committed to making sure that every member of our campus community is valued, respected, and celebrated--we are stronger together.

Christina S. Drale
Chancellor

Students:
In response to the additional challenges that the COVID-19 health crisis has placed on many students, on Friday, March 20, the UA Little Rock Faculty Senate passed emergency legislation that temporarily amends the UA Little Rock Grading Policy (404.13) to allow instructors to issue grades of Credit/No Credit (CR/NC) in lieu of A-F grades for the remaining terms of the Spring 2020 semester.

The Faculty Senate Executive Committee is refining the exact language of the motion. Details about the expanded policy, including an FAQ for faculty and students, will be distributed on Monday, March 30.

Hi, I don’t know if this is okay to post this here. I'm looking to rent out a room in my house in midtown Little Rock. It's a large room with built-in cabinetry and desk space. It's currently serving as a playroom, but doesn't get much use (toys would all be gone, pool table up for negotiation). Bathroom would be shared. I could possibly furnish it to a degree. I have two kids home 50% of the time and have dogs and cats. Would be a good deal for a student or other person on a budget, I'm thinking. $400/month. All utilities included. If you know of anyone who might be interested, please send them my way! I have travelled and lived internationally, have worked for an international organization, and my children attend a magnet school specializing in foreign language and international studies, so we are a culturally sensitive family!
