UCA Students for the Arts is comprised of students who advocate for the advancement and promotion of the arts, arts education and the creative economy in Arkansas. Its mission is to foster a cross-disciplinary community of students who share a love of art. Serving as the campus arm of Arkansans for the Arts, itself a subgroup of Americans for the Arts, UCA’s student chapter is the first of its kind in the nation.
