Dr. Rex M. Horne, Jr., AICU President

Thank you for visiting our web page. Arkansas’ independent colleges and universities are a treasure for the students and our state. I am privileged to serve alongside the presidents of these fine institutions. Each one has a passion to make a difference in the lives of those who study there so they in turn will literally impact the world.

Take a moment and read about these unique colleges and universities. These institutions share a concern for the individual: body, soul, mind and spirit. There is an interest in the whole person including the spiritual. A commitment to characteristics that have made our country strong are inherent here. I think you will be impressed and encouraged with what you find in Arkansas’ independent colleges and universities.

I would enjoy communicating with you about our organization and ways you could help the thousands who attend and graduate each year from our private colleges and universities. I would be pleased to come to your town to speak to a group or civic club.

Thanks again for your interest.
