In 2005, the University of Arkansas System established Winthrop Rockefeller Institute with a grant from the Winthrop Rockefeller Charitable Trust. By integrating the resources and expertise of a statewide university system with the legacy and ideas of Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller, this educational institute and conference center creates an atmosphere where collaboration and change can thrive.
The Rockefeller Institute offers a variety of workshops, seminars, public lectures, conferences and special events. Program areas include civic engagement, philanthropy and food security.
