School Information
University of the Ozarks is home to students seeking to find motivation to think bigger, be courageous, and develop a clear view of the world and their place in it. Located at the base of the beautiful Ozark Mountains in Clarksville, Arkansas, the University is a place where students experience the opportunity to live fully, learn deeply, experience widely, and make an impact far beyond the campus community as they pursue the goal of becoming the best version of themselves. The University provides the challenging academic framework, mentoring and motivation, and strong sense of community to support students in the pursuit of their goals. Established in 1834, the Presbyterian-affiliated, liberal arts university is the oldest institution of higher education in Arkansas.

General Information
There is no evidence the University of the Ozarks requires any form of critical race theory or antiracism training for its students and faculty. Two faculty members recently expressed support for diversity, equity, and inclusion. In particular, one professor of English plans to teach and implement these ideas in the classroom.
