A new fund to assist students with financial emergencies at Arkansas State University-Mountain Home will bear the name of retiring chancellor Dr. Ed Coulter. It was announced at a recent faculty and staff meeting that the faculty and staff associations would honor Coulter by naming the fund the Ed Coulter Student Emergency Fund.
The fund is administered by a committee of faculty and staff. Applicants may receive one-time financial assistance based on a demonstrated economic need which could interfere with the completion of a semester.
ASU MH Faculty Association President Robert Shurley said there have been over 12,925 students who have attended the university during Coulter's tenure as chancellor. Shurley said due to Coulter's leadership, it is sure that each has had their lives changed in some way. He said the faculty and staff hope to honor his legacy by naming the student emergency fund after him due to his dedicated service to the campus and so his name can continue to directly impact the lives of students.
Shurley said the fund is meant to aid students on their college journey. He said when students run into a small monetary emergency, the fund can be used to help them get back on their feet and get them back to focusing on the classroom to maximize their potential as a student.
A plaque was presented to Coulter at the time of the announcement.
