Educate & Empower

Education and Empowerment are essential to making the impact of I³R lasting and sustainable. We will engage with diverse communities - all the communities – in Northwest Arkansas and every region of Arkansas. We will leverage our geography and our people to enable a growing wheel of impact that expands from the local to the global.

I³R is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility and empowering women and other underrepresented groups missing from the workforce.

University of Arkansas students will have the unique opportunity to engage in our research through the Honors College, the Office of Undergraduate Research and Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs.

I³R also offers outreach and coursework through the Collaborative in Bentonville – programs and classes that help take discovery to deployment.
