The Supply Chain Management Research Center links students, faculty and industry to develop tomorrow’s supply chain leaders. We offer programs and opportunities for collaboration in a neutral setting where academics and industry can come together to influence the field of supply chain management.
The center was formed in late 1996 from the insight of transportation and logistics faculty in the Sam M. Walton College of Business who recognized the importance of linking the college to leading logistics industry practitioners. Over the next 15 years, the center’s industry membership increased threefold and representatives from more than 35 member companies came together to define five strategic planning focus areas: student interaction, curriculum/executive education, research, development and membership.
Thanks to our corporate partners, these are exciting times of growth and advancement for supply chain management at the University of Arkansas. Join us as we influence the future of the profession in academia and industry.
Keynote speakers include Gay Gaddis, CEO and founder of T3 (The Think Tank), and Becky Halstead, retired Brigadier General, U.S. Army.
Supply Chain Students at the University of Arkansas have three student organizations dedicated to providing them with opportunities to network with industry: Women Impacting Supply Excellence (WISE), the Transportation & Logistics Association (TLA) and the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals - University of Arkansas Student Chapter (CSCMP). Additionally, the SCMRC Mentorship Program pairs students with executives for a yearlong, one-on-one mentorship opportunity. Find out more information about these programs online, or visit the SCMRC at WJWH 538.
