Newswire Email to Publish as Needed During Spring Break

Arkansas Newswire will move to an as-needed publishing schedule through spring break due to an anticipated decrease in the volume of news and information submitted for campus during this period. University Relations will continue to keep the campus updated on any potential changes as the semester continues.

Arkansas Newswire will continue to publish submitted articles as soon as possible. To submit an article, use the public submission form. For questions about university news or the Newswire email, contact Charlie Alison at

The university's Coronavirus Update site is the primary source for updates regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and its impacts to our community.
