The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville will conduct its U of A Bus Tour 2018 at Pine Bluff.


At 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 16, U of A faculty and administrators will meet their colleagues and tour the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. The meeting will begin at the UAPB STEM building and conference center, according to a U of A news release.


U of A officials will include Chancellor Joe Steinmetz, Provost Jim Coleman, and about 40 new faculty members, including Deacue Fields, the new dean of the Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences.


Steinmetz began the tour in 2016 to help new faculty and administrators get to know Arkansas through visits with schools, industry and alumni and see some of the work the U of A is doing across the state, according to the release.
