Welcome to the newly relaunched Fulbright Review, the digital magazine covering events, news and achievements in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arkansas!

Whether you’re a current student, faculty or staff member, proud alumnus or community friend – we are so excited and grateful to have you as part of our Fulbright Family.

We are also incredibly proud of your accomplishments, and would like to share a few Fulbright College achievements from the 2015-16 fiscal year:

  • We awarded 1,780 degrees
  • We received more than $7.2 million in private gift support
  • We received 143 grants totaling more than $15.5 million
  • Four faculty members received tenure, and we welcomed 27 tenure-track and 82 non-tenure-track faculty members to campus
  • Additionally, our faculty members produced more than 1,620 pieces of scholarly research and creative work

But our most significant accomplishment is you – our Fulbright Family.

My hope is that after reading the Fulbright Review you feel empowered and inspired, and that you let us know about your accomplishments by emailing us at so we can share your stories, too. 

Our Fulbright Family is a huge part of our success, and I hope you know every day how much we appreciate all you do for the college and to continue Senator J. William Fulbright’s legacy of peace through education!

Wishing you happy holidays and a wonderful 2017,
