Governor Beebe Releases $1.5 Million to University of Arkansas for Nanotech Research Center

Fayetteville, AR | Posted on June 25th, 2009

"Governor Beebe has long been one of the strongest supporters of our nanotechnology research, and this is very concrete evidence of that support," said Chancellor G. David Gearhart. "The governor has the vision to see this as an investment in our state's economy, an investment that will pay dividends in the form of new jobs and new businesses. His support is crucial to our success, and we are very grateful to him."

The University of Arkansas is currently doing preliminary work along Dickson Street to build a utility tunnel to the future site of the building at 747 W. Dickson St. Contractors will begin setting up at the site on July 20, with construction work starting soon after that.

It is the flagship campus of the University of Arkansas System and is located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Founded as Arkansas Industrial University in 1871, its present name was adopted in 1899 and classes were first held in February 1872. It is noted for its strong architecture, agriculture (particularly poultry science),[4] creative writing and business programs.[5] It is also noted for the fact that University of Arkansas engineering students won the 2006 world championship for solar-powered boats.
