"Southern Arkansas University Tech (SAU Tech) is a two-year college that serves students and the community by offering career and technical programs, transfer programs, and operating the Arkansas Fire Training Academy, the Arkansas Environmental Training Academy and the Ouachita, Calhoun and Columbia County Adult Education Centers. The college has a strong concurrent enrollment program and operates a secondary career center on its campus to serve students from area high schools. SAU Tech is unique in that it is located inside Highland Industrial Park, which is the largest privately owned industrial park in the southern United States."
