The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff has begun the important task of conducting a national search for its next chancellor. An 1890 land-grant institution, UAPB is the second-oldest public university and the only public historically black institution in Arkansas.
UAPB’s historic mission is to teach in areas related to agriculture and the mechanical arts, as well as scientific and classical studies and help solve economic, agricultural and other problems in the community, state and region. The university has distinguished itself in the areas of aquaculture and fisheries, teacher education, mathematics and science, minority business development and student leadership development.
Under the leadership of University of Arkansas System President Donald R. Bobbitt, the search process will be conducted over the course of the next several months. Bobbitt has formed an advisory search committee of UAPB faculty, staff, students, alumni and community supporters, and secured the services of the executive search firm Greenwood/Asher & Associates to assist in the search process.
