University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR) is a metropolitan university that offers both a traditional and online college education. It is located in Little Rock, Arkansas, United States, and is the second largest university by enrollment in the state of Arkansas. With more than 100 degrees and 60-plus graduate programs, the university allows students to earn a diploma in such areas as nursing, criminal justice, accounting, engineering, education, and psychology. The campus nurtures free thinkers and encourages student research while preparing graduates for the job market through invaluable internships. Academic scholarships and financial aid are available to help cover school tuition fees.

Established as Little Rock Junior College by the Little Rock School District in 1927, the institution became a private four-year university under the name Little Rock University in 1957. It returned to public status in 1969 when it merged and co-created the University of Arkansas System under its present name. Located on 200 acres (0.81 km2) in Arkansas' largest city, the UALR campus encompasses more than 40 buildings, including a university library which contains more than 500,000 volumes, 700,000 microform items, 8,300 audiovisual forms and CDs, and subscribes to 2,625 periodicals. Additionally, UALR houses special learning facilities that include a learning resource center, art galleries, radio station, television station, cyber café, speech and hearing clinic, and a campus-wide wireless network.

Because of the university's location in the state capital, UALR students benefit from close contact with leaders in government, business, industry, medicine (University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences), and information technology. As the state's only metropolitan university and as a member of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities, UALR provides a strategic focus on the needs of the community by creating active links between the campus, community, and commerce.
