Arkansas Tech and LULAC entered into a memorandum of understanding in October 2016 that provides enhanced educational opportunities for Hispanic Americans.
ATU is recognized as a LULAC Latino Destination Campus due to its efforts to facilitate student access and success for individuals of Hispanic descent.
