UCLA's primary purpose as a public research university is the creation, dissemination, preservation, and application of knowledge for the betterment of our global society. To fulfill this mission, UCLA is committed to academic freedom in its fullest terms: they value open access to information, free and lively debate conducted with mutual respect for individuals, and freedom from intolerance. In all of their pursuits, they strive at once for excellence and diversity, recognizing that openness and inclusion produce true quality. These values underlie their three institutional responsibilities. The Computer Science Department strives for excellence in creating, applying, and imparting knowledge in computer science and engineering through comprehensive educational programs, research in collaboration with industry and government, dissemination through scholarly publications, and service to professional societies, the community, the state, and the nation.

You belong at a university where you're part of a community of thinkers and learners interested in making a difference. Founded in 1907, the University of Central Arkansas is one of the most affordable options for higher education in the South. UCA is located in Conway, Arkansas, a friendly city home to two other colleges, earning it the nickname: The City of Colleges." The community is accommodating of its college students and loves and supports its UCA Bears. Conway is located 30 miles north of the capital city, Little Rock, and has a population around 57,000. When looking at the six-county Metropolitan Area, there are nearly 700,000 people living around Little Rock, making Conway a small pocket in a large group of people. UCA is one of the most beautiful campuses in the nation. Lush gardens with seasonal flowers and large shade trees complement the Georgian-architectural style of campus buildings.
