As we draw close to the end of another academic year and begin preparing for commencement, we send out congratulations to our entire Fulbright family of graduates. We celebrate not only the undergraduate and graduate students finishing their degrees in Fulbright College, but also all of those earning their bachelor’s degrees throughout the university.

All University of Arkansas undergraduates are introduced to brilliant, accomplished Fulbright faculty members. The dedicated scholars who teach English and communication, fine arts and humanities, science, mathematics, social science, world history and civil government provide the university’s State Minimum Core. They have shaped the minds of thousands of students who are about to embark on a new chapter of life.

As these young men and women prepare to leave the University of Arkansas and venture out into the world, they leave equipped with the knowledge of their chosen fields, Senator Fulbright’s legacy of peace though education and the support of their Fulbright family. I look forward to watching their progress.
