UA Rich Mountain Moves to Online Instruction for Remainder of Semester

[March 19, 2020 | MENA, Ark.] UA Rich Mountain Chancellor Phillip Wilson announced today that all campuses will move to online instruction for the remainder of the semester. “In the interest of the continuity of course delivery and for the protection of our community, we have made the decision to remain online until the conclusion of the semester.”

The announcement follows a week of unprecedented measures to contain the community spread of the coronavirus. “Making this decision now will allow all of our students, whether local, out of state, or out of country, to return home to practice social distancing and minimize the risk associated with this terribly contagious COVID-19,” Wilson added.

Faculty and staff will remain at work. “Our commitment to our students during this transition is unwavering,” said Wilson. Students are encouraged to call with any questions or issues. A complete employee directory is available at:

“The library, which will remain open to currently enrolled degree seeking students beginning March 30, will offer limited access. Call 479.394.7622 ext. 1371 for those details. In addition, our student support service is available to provide tutoring… know that we are here for you every step of the way.”
