Whether you’re a legendary explorer like Ulysses or a college student who’s just beginning a new journey, the world is an exciting place with so many fascinating places and ideas. This semester we will focus on the importance of maintaining a sense of curiosity as an essential part of our academic and personal growth.

It’s not.”  Let’s work together to make UCA, the state, and the world a better place for all of us….. and let’s have a little fun doing that.  – Dr. Vicki Groves-Scott
