Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Chancellor's Cabinet

Our premier annual giving program

Chancellor's Cabinet at Arkansas State

What is the Chancellor's Cabinet?

Traditional resources available within a state university do not allow it to operate with the flexibility and dexterity that today’s competitive economy requires. Chancellor’s Cabinet Members equip the A-State Chancellor with financial and intellectual resources, enabling the Chancellor to look beyond tradition and lead us into the future.

“Every Red Wolf Counts. Our Chancellor’s Cabinet members are a vital component to our university. They are part of a network that makes all of us stronger.” – Kelly Damphousse, Chancellor
