RAZORBACK SUPPORT SERVICES
ACADEMIC SERVICES Recognizing the difficulty of balancing the demands of athletic competition at the highest level and completion of the rigorous academic standards of a Carnegie research-level university, the Razorback Athletic Department provides support services through both facilities and personnel to guide Arkansas student-athletes to their ultimate goal: University of Arkansas diploma. The key components of the Center for Student-Athlete Success (CSAS) are personal development, career development, academic tutoring, study hall facilities, class attendance monitoring and incentive awards recognizing academic achievement. BOGLE ACADEMIC CENTER There is no higher priority for the University of Arkansas Athletic Department than the academic progress of its scholar-athletes. Thanks to the generous gift of Bob and Marilyn Bogle, the home of the Razorback Athletic Department’s Student-Athlete Academic Support and Achievement program is the Bob and Marilyn Bogle Academic Center. The 15,000-square foot Bogle Academic Center is located in the east side of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Under the overall direction of Senior Associate Athletic Director Jon Fagg, the Bogle Academic Center houses the Arkansas Razorbacks Academic Support Program, the Razorback Student-Athlete Development Office and the Career Development Program. Associate Athletic Director for Academics and Student-Athlete Development Eric A. Wood oversees the staff of professionals dedicated to directing student-athletes to reach their personal academic goals, and to do so in ways that balance their academic, athletic and personal lives.
STUDY HALL AND TUTORS A quiet setting for uninterrupted study, the Bogle Academic Center provides three types of study hall space. The computer lab has more than 30 stations for individual computer-based study. An open study hall is available for group or individual study, and monitored by staff members of the SAASA. There are 17 individual study carrels that provide space for tutors to meet with studentathletes for individual instruction in specific subjects. Each Razorback team sets its own criteria for study hall attendance. The use of tutors is a key element for academic success, allowing for individualized assistance and for reaching academic excellence in advanced subjects. STUDENT-ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT The mission of the Student-Athlete Development Office is to contribute to the personal growth and character development of Razorback student-athletes through holistic programming for success in life. The Student-Athlete Development Office continues to expand its commitment to the offerings and opportunities in the following areas: * Academic Excellence * Athletic Excellence * Career Development and Graduate School Preparation * Community Service * Personal Development * Health and Wellness * Leadership and Character Development * Financial Planning
