Unplanned Pregnancy Reports Due (Act 943)

When: August 15, 2024 12:00 PM

The Division of Higher Education of the Department of Education collects the annual campus status reports each year, as required by Act 943 of 2015. The Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board submits annual reports on implementation by November 1 to the Arkansas General Assembly via the House and Senate Education Committees and the House and Senate Public Health, Welfare and Labor Committees.

The legislation directs higher education institutions in nine areas. Among those directives colleges and universities are:

  • to identify methods of addressing the problem of unplanned pregnancy,
  • to collaborate with health centers,
  • to identify a measure of success, and
  • to incorporate into academic coursework “as appropriate”.

The legislation mandates that campuses include information in their orientations on the prevention of unplanned pregnancy. 

Submit plans by August 15, 2024, to Tracye McKeown,
