Effective leadership, beginning with the Board of Trustees to the president, chancellor and our executive leadership, is vital to the success of UAMS’ mission.

The Board of Trustees of the University of Arkansas (U of A) is our institution’s main governing body. Appointed by and responsible to the 10-member Board of Trustees, the U of A president manages the offices and executes the policies of the U of A system. Each U of A campus has a chancellor, who reports directly to the president and oversees a cabinet of executive leadership. UAMS also has ambassadors, who raise public awareness and lead fundraising initiatives. Through leadership and governance we strive for continuous improvement and adherence to institutional policies and best practices. UAMS’ leadership is committed to bringing UAMS and its mission to the forefront of healthcare.
