Arkansas Tech University President Dr. Robin E. Bowen and Northwest Arkansas Community College President Dr. Evelyn E. Jorgenson signed an articulation agreement on Thursday, Oct. 7, that will provide enhanced opportunities at ATU for NWACC graduates.

“By signing this agreement with Northwest Arkansas Community College, we reiterate to students from that region of our state that Arkansas Tech University is a quality option for their continuing educational needs,” said Bowen. “It is our hope this will lead to more graduates from Northwest Arkansas Community College exploring their options at ATU, which in turn will lead many to find their fit with us in Russellville. We are appreciative of Dr. Jorgenson and her team at NWACC for their continued partnership in creating greater student access and success in Arkansas.”
