The University of Arkansas at Monticello and ASU-Beebe signed a Memorandum of Understanding 2 + 2 articulation agreement during a brief ceremony at the ASU-Beebe England Center on September 1.

Partnerships like these ensure sustainability in higher education, creating bright futures for our institutions and the students that we proudly serve."

Dr. Jennifer Methvin, chancellor of ASU-Beebe, said, “We are excited to partner with UAM on this articulation agreement. This is an exceptional pathway for those who wish to pursue a bachelor’s degree in visual arts, and our faculty worked together to make it happen.”
