“Intercollegiate Athletics looks forward to supporting Campaign Arkansas through its Never Yield campaign and making a significant impact on all of the university’s talented student-athletes. The U of A is a part of my family’s legacy, and I am proud to support its efforts.”

The University of Arkansas Department of Intercollegiate Athletics continues to fulfill its mission of developing more than 460 student-athletes to their fullest potential through intercollegiate athletics. As members of the Southeastern Conference (SEC), the Razorbacks consistently compete and win in the nation’s best conference while proudly representing the University of Arkansas and the entire state.

As one of less than 25 financially self-sustaining athletic programs in the nation, Razorback Athletics not only doesn’t utilize state appropriated funding designated for the University of Arkansas, it helps provide additional financial support of more than $3.325 million annually for academic programs and other campus programs. Arkansas sponsors 19 varsity sports programs including 11 women’s and 8 men’s sports. Women’s sports include basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis and volleyball. Men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field and tennis.
