David Durr, dean of the Information Technology Division, has been elected to serve a two-year term on the board of InfraGard Arkansas.
InfraGard is a cooperative undertaking between the U.S. Government (led by the Federal Bureau of Investigation) and an association of businesses, academic institutions, state and local law enforcement agencies and other participants dedicated to increasing the security of the United States' critical infrastructures.
