ASU Technical Center Administrators Moving to Newport Campus

MARKED TREE, AR - Administrative oversight and direction of the Arkansas State University Technical Center at Marked Tree will transfer to ASU-Newport, effective June 1.  The change was authorized today by the action of the ASU Board of Trustees during its meeting at Heber Springs.

The Marked Tree campus has been administratively alligned with ASU in Jonesboro as part of the ASU system since 2001.

The primary reason for the change is because the mission of the Marked Tree campus fits much better with the mission of ASU-Newport, according to ASU System President Les Wyatt, who recommended the change.
