The influence that White has had on the University of Arkansas is tremendous and has set the mark for what this university can achieve. White was a chancellor and is a College of Engineering alumnus. He earned a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from the University of Arkansas in 1962 and furthered his education with a master's degree and doctorate from Virginia Polytechnic and State University and Ohio State University, respectively. White also holds honorary doctorates from universities around the world. Before returning to the University of Arkansas, White served on the faculty board and was the dean of engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. White also has had experience as the assistant director for engineering at the National Science Foundation in Washington, D.C. On Oct. 17, 2013, the historic Engineering Hall was renamed and dedicated as John A. White Jr. Engineering Hall.
