Faculty Handbook: Introduction
Message from the Chancellor

Dear Faculty:

Welcome to the University of Arkansas. Our core mission as a land-grant and flagship university is nothing short of providing educational opportunity and transforming lives through teaching, discovery, and service. That mission begins with you and with your dedication to your chosen field and to the students you guide. Indeed, our success as a campus is a direct result of your professional and personal commitment to the university and for that I am very grateful.  

The policies and procedures outlined in the Faculty Handbook will acquaint you with the administration and governance of the University of Arkansas. As you become familiar with the university, I encourage you to pursue academic excellence and preserve academic freedom through participation in university governance. Faculty leadership is indispensable to maintaining and improving the quality of this institution, and I hope you will share in that responsibility. We depend on your informed input and look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for all you do.

Charles F. Robinson
Interim Chancellor
