UA-Pulaski Tech deal gets final approval

Posted By on Thu, May 26, 2016 at 10:24 AM

The University of Arkansas Board of Trustees, meeting in Nashville, voted unanimously today for the merger of Pulaski Tech, the North Little Rock-based two-year college, into the UA System.

From Pulaski Tech:


“The UA System Board of Trustees vote today is a watershed moment for Pulaski Tech,” said Dr. Margaret Ellibee, president of Pulaski Tech. “It begins the process of working out the many details that must be considered as we join a large institution with a larger system. We will do so deliberately, without losing sight of our priority to ensure the success of our students. Ultimately, this partnership will make us all stronger, and our students must be the primary beneficiaries of the opportunities that will evolve.”
Today's approval was expected. The partnership was initiated by UA System President Donald Bobbitt. The Pulaski Tech board approved the deal earlier this month.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
