SAU Honors College

The SAU Honors College was founded in 2003 by Dr. David Rankin, president of SAU. Dr. Lynne Belcher served as founding director and recently retired from SAU. The Honors College seeks and admits qualified students who seek to pursue a serious academic program with equally gifted peers and committed teachers. Honors classes are small and provide academically enriching opportunities for students and the faculty who teach them. Currently, SAU enrolls nearly 170 honors students and graduates about 66% of admitees in four years or less. Anyone interested in applying to the Honors College or seeking further information should contact the director, Dr. Edward P. Kardas at or at 870 904-8897.

David Wingfield has been with the Honors College since Day 1 and is the glue that holds the ship together. He can solve nearly any problem.

Laura Nash is in her second year as our student worker and has already traveled to Cuba and to Cameroon in pursuing her studies in agriculture and accounting.

Bosede Edeniyi is our newest staff member having joined us in summer 2017. She's from Nigeria and is studying Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

Ishwor Amgain is from Nepal and is our technical guru. He handles all of our Web-based efforts and much more.
