U of A Libraries Receives $5.1m In Gifts

NWA Daily

The University of Arkansas Libraries recently received more than $5m from individuals as gifts to create new opportunities for students and faculty. 

  • Improvements: Most of the contributions will establish 2 endowed faculty positions, a Dean’s Chair and a Professorship in Special Collections. Part of the funds will go toward renovations of the Mullins Library. 
  • Amplified: The gifts are from anonymous graduates of the U of A, and their combined contribution is the largest given to the University Libraries to date. The new endowed positions will be the first for the University Libraries and will enable amplification of the Special Collections Division.
