University of Arkansas at Little Rock (referred to as "UALR") was founded as Little Rock Junior College in 1927 by the Little Rock School District. In 1957, it became a private four-year university and changed its name to Little Rock University. However, in 1969 it went back to public status when it merged with and co-created the University of Arkansas System with its current name. Today, this public university in Little Rock, Arkansas is the second largest university in the state of Arkansas in terms of student enrollment.

Because the university is located in the state capital, students at UALR are able to benefit from and interact with leaders in business, government, medicine (University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences), industry, and information technology. Consequently, UALR is able to create links between commerce, community, and the campus which serve the whole community. UALR is a member of the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities and is the state's only metropolitan university.

UALR has more than forty buildings and has a campus-wide wireless network, a speech and hearing clinic, cyber café, television station, radio station, art galleries, special learning facilities (which include a learning resource center), and a library which has more than 8,300 audiovisual forms and CDs, access to more than 2,625 periodicals, more than 700,000 microform items, and more than 500,000 volumes.
