"Advancing Computing as a Science & Profession"
Founded in 1947, the Association for Computing Machinery is the world's largest computing Society. As the UA Little Rock student chapter of the ACM, our mission is to be a resource for the academic and professional
development of our members and to advance the interests of the field of computing within our community.
We strive to equip students in their pursuance of computing education in such a way they are excited to learn.
We host frequent events, whether it be guest speakers from industry, educational activities, or just to work on projects and hangout. Come see what we are all about!
We are involved in our communities. Whether it be other ACM chapters, the home University, or generically the community of learning. We have a presence so we can help make a change when it is needed most!
The UA Little Rock ACM Student Chapter has identified some of the difficulties being faced by Students across the nation. Currently, students are having to adapt to a new, online learning environment due to the COVID-19 virus. We see that there is a need for access to computing devices for students taking classes online and feel that this is an issue that we are well equipped to help our local community overcome. In September 2020, we ran a tech donation drive and had over 100 computers donated to us. We have refurbished as many of these computers as possible and have them available for students and families that are in need. If you are in need of a computer, please feel free to complete our computer request form!
