Role & Scope

The Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board is charged with establishing appropriate role and scope designations for each public higher education institution in consultation with representatives of the colleges and universities. The statute under which this responsibility is assigned to the Coordinating Board (ACA 6-61-207) also requires that these designations be reviewed on a periodic basis. An amendment to this Act, enacted in 2005, requires these designations to incorporate consideration of the changing economic needs of the state.
