The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is one step closer to finding out if it wants to develop the state’s first dental college. The Arkansas Legislative Council Review Subcommittee on Tuesday approved a contract studying the viability of the school.
Provost Stephanie Garner said the college should only move forward if the consultant’s report supports it.
“I think this is the time to evaluate this. The amount is less than $50,000 for the first phase and we would not move to another phase if the consultant said it’s not possible,” said Garner.
