Webster University to Offer Classes in Bentonville
Webster University has rented a classroom in Bentonville, Arkansas to better serve students while major highway construction happens in the region.

FAYETTEVILLE, ARKANSAS - Webster University will offer classes at the Community College in Bentonville to better serve students. The new location will allow students to avoid road construction on Interstate 49 and reduce the amount of time students spend driving to and from class.

The State of Arkansas is currently widening the highway from four to six lanes in Benton and Washington counties, but has long term plans to extend and widen the highway over the next several years.

“We understand the need to widen the highway and fully support the construction efforts, but the project itself has made it frustrating for students who work or live in Benton County to get to our Fayetteville location in a timely manner,” said Mike Gibbs, director of the Fayetteville location. “We believe this new auxiliary location will help alleviate the need for our students to navigate the daily traffic jams and also save a little gas money at the same time.”

Webster University is renting classroom space on the main campus of Northwest Arkansas Community College at 1 College Drive, Bentonville. Webster classes will be offered there starting in early January for the Spring 1, 2017 term. Webster University hosts two nine-week spring and fall terms each semester. Webster University’s current location is located at 688 Millsap Road, Suite 200 in Fayetteville.

Webster University in Arkansas offers several degree programs, including master’s degrees in business administration (MBA), human resource management, and management and leadership. Webster University has been serving Northwest Arkansas for more than 15 years.

With its home campus in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, Webster University (www.webster.edu) comprises an action-oriented global network of faculty, staff, students and alumni who forge powerful bonds with each other and with their communities around the globe. Founded in 1915, Webster is a private non-profit university with nearly 17,000 students studying at campus locations in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa and in a robust learning environment online. The university is committed to delivering high-quality learning experiences that transform students for global citizenship and individual excellence.
