About Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas
The University of Arkansas, the flagship campus of the University of Arkansas System, resides on a former hilltop farm overlooking the Ozark Mountains to the south. At the University’s founding in 1871, the site was described as “second to none in the state of Arkansas.”Located in Fayetteville, the University is both the major land-grant university for Arkansas and the state university. The University was created under the Morrill Land-Grant College Act of 1862, whereby federal land sales provided funds for new colleges devoted to agriculture and the mechanic arts, scientific and classical studies and military tactics, all designed for the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes. The University’s founding satisfied the provision in the Arkansas Constitution of 1868 that the General Assembly establish and maintain a state university.Citizens in Fayetteville and surrounding Washington County raised $130,000 to secure the University’s location in a statewide competition sparked by the General Assembly’s Organic Act of 1871, providing for the “location, organization and maintenance of the Arkansas Industrial University with a normal department [i.e., teacher education...] therein.”Today, the University of Arkansas encompasses more than 130 buildings on 345 acres and provides nearly 200 academic programs, more than some universities twice its size. At the same time, it maintains a low student-to-faculty ratio (currently 17:1) that makes personal attention possible. The University promotes undergraduate research in virtually every discipline and makes higher education affordable with competitively priced tuition and generous financial aid.Fayetteville is home to more than 68,000 residents and growing every day. The city occupies the southern tip of a metroplex that runs northward 25 miles along Interstate 540 through Washington and Benton counties in northwest Arkansas.
