To support the health of student-athletes and meet the specialized needs of sports nutrition, a dining hall and a full-service kitchen will be integral components of the building. The facility will also include offices for the sports psychologist, nutritionist, and student-athlete development staff.
The Student-Athlete Success center will help address the academic, nutritional, personal and professional development of more than 460 student-athletes in a 47,000-58,000 square foot facility, creating an integrated academic support program focused on graduation of all student-athletes at the University of Arkansas.
The facility will accommodate multiple learning environments including academic advising and course preparation, leadership training through the Razorback Leadership Academy, career planning and service learning. The center will also house student-athlete educational programs designed to foster healthy life choices and maximize performance through nutrition.
The facility will include tutorial rooms, group study rooms, quiet study areas, a computer lab and learning laboratories focused on mathematics, sciences, and language skills as well as a 500-seat auditorium, which could be made available to campus for special events.
