Division of External Affairs

Henderson State University's Division of External Affairs develops and promotes educational, economic and community growth for the people of southwest Arkansas. 

The university reaches out to non-traditional students through articulation agreements and on-site and online class offerings as well as continuing adult education and vocational training offered through the HSU Community Education center in conjunction with two-year schools. 

Henderson is committed to working with the two-year institutions in Arkansas to ensure seamless transitions for students wishing to receive their bachelor's degrees. Additionally, the university partners with the community - in Arkadelphia and beyond - by encouraging students, faculty and staff to become involved in community service and civic engagement. A specific focus is also directed towards economic development in southwest Arkansas through collaboration with regional educational institutions, industries and businesses.
