College History

History

The University of Arkansas at Monticello was established in 1909 by an act of the Arkansas General Assembly to serve the educational needs of southern Arkansas. Originally called the Fourth District Agricultural School, the school opened its doors September 14, 1910. In 1925, the General Assembly authorized the school's name to be changed to the Arkansas Agricultural and Mechanical College. Arkansas A&M received accreditation as a junior college in 1928 and as a four-year institution in 1940. During World War II, Arkansas A & M College was one of 131 colleges and universities nationally that took part in the V-12 Navy College Training Program which offered students a path to a Navy commission. Arkansas A&M became part of the University of Arkansas system on July 1, 1971, and it was then that it actually became the University of Arkansas at Monticello. In that year, the University of Arkansas increased its racial diversity by adding three new campuses in Little Rock, Pine Bluff, and Monticello that either already had large numbers of Black students, or which in the case of the new campus in Little Rock, would soon acquire many of these. On July 1, 2003, the University of Arkansas at Monticello expanded its mission to include vocational and technical education when the UAM College of Technology-Crossett and the UAM College of Technology-McGehee became part of the University of Arkansas at Monticello to create a larger system of postsecondary education in Southern Arkansas.
