UA-PTC School of Technical and Professional Studies Mission Statement

Provide access to high quality, life-long learning and career opportunities through a variety of educational offerings, including certificate and degree programs, short-term industry specific training, and community education.

Message from the Dean of Technical and Professional StudiesDr. Bentley Wallace

Welcome to the School of Technical and Professional Studies at UA – Pulaski Tech! As Dean of the School, I have the great privilege of working to support our students, faculty, and staff in a wide variety of programs at four separate locations in North Little Rock and Little Rock.

The School, known as “SoTaPS,” is in the business of providing access and opportunity to students, employers, and community members. And whether you are enrolled in a community education class, an industry-specific training seminar, or in one of our many certificate and degree programs, you will experience an environment of support, inclusion, collaboration, and life-long learning.

High-wage, high-demand jobs are plentiful in central Arkansas, and SoTaPS offers pathways to those good careers, with faculty, curriculum, and facilities that are all geared toward relevancy and student success. The School includes five primary functional areas, including:

  • Workforce Development and Community Education
  • Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management Institute
  • Business and Information Technology
  • Technical Sciences
  • High School Career Center

Within each of these areas, dedicated faculty and staff work very hard to make sure that students experience a culture of discovery, learn how to think critically, learn how to solve problems, and gain a broader world view as a result of their time at UA-PTC.

Join us in the School of Technical and Professional Studies and let us help you develop to your fullest potential. If you have questions about our opportunities for success, please e-mail me at [email protected] or call my office at (501) 812-2336.
