University Development raises private gift support for the University to help accomplish its three-fold mission of teaching, research and public service. Private gift support builds the funds that ensure a margin of excellence and quality for faculty, students, academic programs and facilities. Private gift support is key to the University vision of emerging as a nationally competitive, student-centered research university serving Arkansas and the world. To attract and retain the best faculty and students, Bumpers College must increase its support by securing named chairs and professorships; offering more assistantships, fellowships, and scholarships; and upgrading its oldest facilities. Substantial progress on these three objectives will enhance the national reputation of Bumpers College and strengthen its ongoing partnerships with the Division of Agriculture and the people of Arkansas.
