FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- The University of Arkansas plays host for "Federal Day".

Representatives from offices of five state senators spent a few hours visiting with researchers at the College of Engineering on Wednesday.

The college is currently working to expand research programs so their hope is representatives will see the importance of the research and continue to support it.
Heather Nachtmann, with the College of Engineering, tells us state leaders help connect researchers with organizations and businesses who can benefit from and participate in the research.
