May 23, 2011 | The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) awarded certificates and degrees to 862 graduates of its five colleges and graduate school during its May 21 commencement ceremony at Barton Coliseum. Fred W. Smith, chairman of the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation Board of Trustees, received an honorary doctorate in recognition of his longtime support of UAMS and better health for Arkansans.

Diplomas were presented to 141 in the College of Medicine; 223 in the College of Nursing; 112 in the College of Pharmacy; 44 in the Fay W. Boozman College of Public Health; 53 in the Graduate School and 289 from the 18 academic programs that make up the College of Health Related Professions.

During the ceremony UAMS Chancellor Dan Rahn, M.D., presented Smith an Honorary Doctorate of Medical Arts and Humane Letters. Rahn presented the Chancellor’s Award for Distinguished Service to B. Alan Sugg, Ph.D., who is retiring as president of the University of Arkansas System.

Smith has been chairman of the Reynolds Foundation Board of Trustees since 1992. Under Smith’s leadership, the foundation has awarded more than $1.5 billion in grants, including more than $413 million in Arkansas and more than $82 million to UAMS.

Construction of the Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging facility at UAMS was made possible as part of a $28.8 million gift from the Reynolds Foundation in 1997. The foundation provided an additional $30.4 million in June 2009 for expansion of the institute, and $3 million to the Arkansas Aging Initiative, a program of the Institute on Aging that oversees eight Centers on Aging across Arkansas. The foundation has also provided operations and endowment support for the Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatrics.

Sugg has served as UA System president since 1990, leading the system through a period of unprecedented growth. He is retiring June 30 or when a successor is found.

Enrollment has surged from some 30,000 students on five campuses in 1990 to almost 70,000 students across 17 campuses and units today. Also during this time, the colleges and universities of the UA system have granted more than 150,000 academic degrees.

In his tenure, there has been more than $2 billion in new construction and major renovation projects completed across the system.

During commencement, degrees and certificates conferred include the doctor of philosophy, doctor of medicine, doctor of pharmacy, master of science, master of nursing science, bachelor of science in nursing, master of public health, doctor of public health, certificate in clinical and translational science, master of health services administration, post baccalaureate certificate in public health and a variety of degrees in the allied health disciplines including certificates, associate and Bachelor of Science degrees, post-baccalaureate certificates, the master of imaging sciences and doctor of audiology.
