"UALR does big-time research?" was the first question I was asked when I disclosed my interest in a position with UA Little Rock. The most astounding thing about this question was that it was asked by my father, a longtime resident of Arkansas.
It was a good reminder that the innovative research performed at UA Little Rock by its industry-leading, dedicated faculty and talented students often remains unknown to many residents living just around the corner. It has been my mission and my pleasure to spread the word that UA Little Rock does, in fact, have some "big-time" research happening on campus.
