Chancellor's Circle

The Chancellor’s Circle is UAMS’ premier annual giving society supporting the entire institution. It is because of our members that we have been able to provide critical funding for important programs that otherwise would not have come to fruition.

The Chancellor distributes these funds via grants to address UAMS’ highest priorities as an institution. This allows us to attract distinguished scholars, purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment, and finance research projects of high potential to the state’s economic and social development. These grants are an annual tradition that continues to grow.

Since 1984, the Chancellor’s Circle has provided nearly $8 million in financial support for UAMS and its mission of improving the health and health care of people in Arkansas and beyond. Each year, we continue to welcome more families into the Chancellor’s Circle.

We have an invaluable partnership with our Chancellor’s Circle members, whose private philanthropy continues to make an incredible impact. We take pride in all that we are accomplishing together.
