The Arkansas State University System is a collection of ten campuses located across northeast and central Arkansas, USA. The system offices are located on the main campus in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

In 2006, the Arkansas State University System named Robert L. Potts the first chancellor of the Jonesboro campus and Les Wyatt the President of the ASU System. Previously, the ASU System president was also in charge of the Jonesboro campus. This move is expected to allow the System more room for growth.[2]

History

The Fowler Center on the Jonesboro campus of ASU is a regional center for the arts.

Arkansas State University in Jonesboro was established in 1909.

In 1955, the Beebe campus fell under the control of Arkansas State University. Arkansas State University Beebe, which has been in existence since 1927, is the only two-year college in the state to offer traditional dorm housing. ASU-Beebe administers three other sites: ASU-Heber Springs, ASU-Searcy, and ASU-Little Rock Air Force Base.

ASU-Beebe associated with White River Vocational-Technical School at Newport in 1992; that campus has since attained stand-alone status from ASU-Beebe and is now ASU-Newport.

The Mountain Home campus officially became ASU-Mountain Home in 1995.

Delta Technical Institute at Marked Tree merged with ASU and became Arkansas State University Technical Center in 2001; it and a similar facility later established in Jonesboro are now under ASU-Newport.

ASU offers bachelor's degree programs, master's degree programs and upper level courses through ASU degree centers at ASU-Beebe, ASU-Mountain Home, and three other cities -- Blytheville, Forrest City, and West Memphis - where partnership agreements have been established in cooperation with the local community colleges. The ASU System also maintains ASU-Paragould, an instructional site of the Jonesboro campus.

ASU has grown rapidly over the past 20 years. Current enrollment for the Jonesboro campus stands at about 12,000, and the system has an enrollment of greater than 17,000.
