A newly-launched U of A website connects businesses, non-profits and other organizations with the many ways the U of A can support them.

Partner With U of A is a convenient one-stop shop for connecting with resources for:

·        Hiring students and graduates,

·        Connecting with university-led research,

·        Training and upskilling your workforce,

·        Launching and growing businesses,

·        Investing in U of A students and

·        Finding office space for lease, coworking and meetings.

"When we meet with companies, they often are interested in working with our colleges and universities, but they do not always know where to start to access the research, workforce development services and other resources that are available in Arkansas," said Clint O'Neal, executive director of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission. "Partner With U of A will be a great help to businesses that do not have existing campus contacts or that are looking to broaden their engagement with the University of Arkansas."

"The University of Arkansas is committed to expanding economic opportunity in Arkansas, and we have the resources, know-how and work-ready graduates to make it a reality," said Mike Malone, vice chancellor for economic development. "Partner With U of A is our front door to collaboration. We want to help connect even more of the knowledge, talent and expertise that exists on this campus with businesses, non-profits and organizations for impact on our state and beyond."
