Making a Difference in Computing and Information Technology
Created in 2006, the Arkansas Academy of Computing began within the University of Arkansas Computer Science and Computer Engineering Department in Fayetteville. Since its formation, the organization has expanded its charter to be a state-wide resource to advance computing and information technology. The Arkansas Academy of Computing goals are:
- To recognize persons who have made significant and sustained contributions to the computing profession
- To support and promote computing and information technology education at all levels (which includes scholarships)
- To promote computer literacy
- To promote professionalism in the field of computing
Membership into the Academy is controlled by the Executive Committee. To learn more about the organization, click here.

An hoc committee of the Academy meets to discuss ways to “make a difference in computing and information technology” for the State of Arkansas. The committee is working on ideas to increase awareness for computing and information technology careers for students in K through 12 grades. Members include (from left to right), Don Hatfield, Gary Dowdy, Carl Frank, Alese Stroud, Collins Andrews, John Chamberlin and Allison Nicholas (taking the picture!).
