Speakers and Experts

The University of Arkansas - Fort Smith Speakers Bureau promotes the university by providing more than 40 UAFS administration, faculty and staff members as speakers for professional and civic organizations, giving the region a glimpse of the institution's programs and its people. Speakers have a list of prepared 20- to 30-minute presentations on an array of subjects, from Fort Smith history to creative writing. All speakers are provided free of charge.


To request a speaker, please email Rachel.Putman@uafs.edu with your preferred speaker and the time, date and location of the speaking engagement. Because many of our speakers are teaching faculty, we need as much advance notice as possible. Also, please have another speaker in mind should your preferred speaker have a prior commitment during your group's meeting time.
