Tech CLL Enters New Era at Renovated Facility

Current and future school administration leaders from across Arkansas have a new place to call home.
The Arkansas Tech University Center for Leadership and Learning (CLL) has moved into a facility on Highway 333 South across from the Lake Point Conference Center.
The 5,460-square foot facility offers CLL faculty members and students with the tools necessary to create new career opportunities for education professionals and a new generation of leaders for Arkansas’ public schools. 
“What we are working with here is the 21st century classroom,” said Dr. Mary Gunter, dean of the Arkansas Tech Graduate College, as she showed one of the classrooms at the CLL facility. “We are in the business of innovation and partnerships for the future.”
The Arkansas Tech CLL offers post-graduate degrees that can allow teachers to pursue careers as principals, curriculum leaders, superintendents and other positions within school administration.
The new facility has a large classroom with distance learning capabilities, a smaller classroom that will soon be fitted with its own distance learning equipment, a conference room and faculty offices.
Arkansas Tech purchased the building in October 2008. Members of the Arkansas Tech Physical Plant staff performed the renovations on the building, and they were honored with a luncheon hosted by the CLL on Friday.
“These are craftsmen,” said Gunter, who is photographed here with Dennis Hill, director of the Tech Physical Plant. “We watched this renovation process from the beginning, and we saw excellence in their work. They take pride in doing superior work, and that is evidenced in this building.”
