UCA’s College of Education promotes a strong emphasis on preparing educators to work effectively with low-achieving student populations to improve student learning outcomes. The College is also interested in attracting more diverse educator candidates to its programs. UCA continues to be one of the top two producers of licensed school educators in the state. Currently, more than 5,000 UCA graduates work as educators in Arkansas k-12 schools, with the highest concentration of its graduates working in central Arkansas or northwest Arkansas.
