'Arkansas News' Email Switching to Reduced Winter Schedule

Arkansas News, the daily summary of U of A news sent via email to students, faculty, staff and other subscribers, will have a slightly reduced schedule during the remainder of 2023.

Over the course of the next four weeks, the Arkansas News email will only be sent out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays starting on Monday, Dec. 11. The email will not be sent out when campus is closed for university holidays. This change will allow more news to be seen with each email and avoid the potential of having to cancel a news email completely without notice due to a lack of or a low number of submissions. All recently published university news and features will always be available at news.uark.eduArkansas News will return to its daily schedule on Monday, Jan. 8.
