Why you should attend?

Since our early days in Cane Hill, Arkansas, University of the Ozarks has been a pioneer in education. Ozarks was the first university in the state to admit women (1871); the first predominately white university in the state to confer a degree on an African-American (1959); the first university in the state to racially integrate athletics (1963); and the first university in the nation to create a program specifically designed for students with learning disabilities (1971). In 2018, Ozarks re-established its ROTC program (in collaboration with the University of Central Arkansas' ROTC program), and in 2020, the University entered into an affiliation with Greystone Preparatory School to house their military programs, becoming the only four-year, fully accredited university affiliated with an academy prep school.
