New budget collaborations mean math and statistics software is now available across campus.

Barriers are removed campus-wide with a new cost-sharing initiative that allows all students, faculty and staff to access math and statistics software applications without being billed individually.

This initiative, launched under the leadership of Tim O’Donnell, Vice Chancellor of Finance and Administration, was designed to enhance student learning and benefit all members of our university community.

Starting this summer, IT has been collaborating with financial leaders across campus on a cost-sharing model that will serve as the foundation for funding the future of on-campus software distribution.

“With Tim’s encouragement, we began to look for ways to provide students with the tools they need at no individual cost,” said Clay Greninger, senior director of finance for IT services. “After speaking with our partners, it was clear that this was something we could do together to support the success of students and faculty at the University of Arkansas.”

Applications now available at no additional cost to individuals or academic units include: AMOS, JMP, JMP Genomics, SAS, Sigmaplot, SPSS, Systat and Mathematica. Visit software.uark.edu to learn more.

Accessibility software such as Fusion, Dragon, NVIDIA, and Read & Write will soon be available across campus. This software is essential for supporting students with special needs and will provide equal access to all campus locations.

The software is also available for use in Tech Spot labs and in the new Remote Lab driver.
