Invest In Our Students

The University of Arkansas has recently experienced the greatest enrollment increase in decades. Concurrently, the Arkansas Department of Higher Education calculated a gap of $30 million between what the state gives to the University and what is required to meet our student needs. Private gift support from our alumni and friends will help us bridge this gap and accomplish our goals.

Why Invest in Walton College?

For nearly a century, the Walton College has excelled because of benefactors like you.

Thanks to the generosity of the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation and all the generous donors before and after its gift, the endowed chairs, professorships, student scholarships and new programs we offer have positioned us competitively on the national stage.

The Walton College was also propelled into the rankings as a top 25 undergraduate business school. Today the Walton College aspires to be a top 20 business school.
