The adult education program at the University of Arkansas at Monticello has added adult education centers in Star City and Dumas to current locations in Crossett, Hamburg and McGehee, according to Dorissa Kaufman, director of adult education.

The adult education programs at the UAM Colleges of Technology at Crossett and McGehee were merged earlier this year and with the merger came interest from adult education centers in Crossett, Dumas and Star City. “The mergers will help lessen administrative costs and will let the centers spend more money on students and instructional material rather than on administrative overhead,” explained Kaufman.

There are now six adult education centers in southeast Arkansas affiliated with UAM. They are located in North Crossett (870-364-6414), Crossett (870-364-7667),Hamburg (870-853-8278), Star City (870-628-5287), Dumas (870-382-2157), and McGehee (870-222-5360).

The adult education centers in Star City and Crossett have moved to new locations and open houses are planned for both locations in September, dates and times to be determined. For more information, contact Dorissa Kaufman at (870) 222-5360.
