JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - The Arkansas State University System on Friday announced they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Henderson State University to provide various operations support services to the university, officials said.

In a statement to Region 8 News, ASU System President Chuck Welch said the decision will help Henderson State in a difficult situation.

"Henderson State University is an important institution in Arkansas, and the ASU System stands ready to assist its leadership as they navigate through some challenging times,” Welch said. “As a former president of Henderson, I’m very familiar with the campus, excellent faculty and staff. I’m confident our team can provide valuable support and input to the acting president as decisions are made that will return Henderson to sound financial footing.”
