Office of the Chancellor


Welcome to the University of Arkansas at Monticello

Welcome to the University of Arkansas at Monticello and thank you for taking the time to learn more about our university. It is my great honor to serve as the thirteenth chancellor in the history of Arkansas A&M/UAM and to be the first UAM graduate to serve in this role. At our institution, we have a phrase– “United by UAM” – which exemplifies the spirit of our university.  Our university community of learning focuses on ensuring your success. We will provide you with exceptional experiences to prepare you for your future after UAM whether that is graduate school or immediately starting a career. Becoming a UAM “Weevil” means you will be a part of a close-knit community that supports you and helps you achieve your dream.

UAM is uniquely poised to serve the educational needs of our students and to prepare them to begin their chosen career or to continue their education in graduate degree programs. Our three campuses, the main campus at Monticello, and our two Colleges of Technology at McGehee, and Crossett, offer a wide selection of degree options such as technical certificates, associate, bachelor, and master degrees.  We have a degree pathway for everyone.  UAM graduates also enjoy high rates of acceptance into professional and graduate programs of their choice.  

At UAM, you will find strong mentors in our faculty, staff, and coaches who will help you grow, develop, and realize your full potential.  Our campus’ rich social and cultural life provides something of interest for everyone and an environment to make connections and friendships that last a lifetime.

Our success is contributed to many factors: our talented and dedicated faculty; the energy, enthusiasm, and inventiveness of graduate and undergraduate students; the dedication and support of excellent staff; the passion of our alumni; and the support and active engagement of our many donors, partners, and supporters.

I invite you to explore our website, visit our beautiful campus, and explore what UAM has to offer you. Discover what sets UAM apart from other universities.
