Giving to UABSSK Photo NEW PREFERRED Dec12 Philanthropy helps make great things possible. That is certainly true at UAB, where we recognize that people—our alumni, donors, volunteers, students, parents, physicians, faculty, and staff—are and always will be our most valuable asset. UAB is the thriving academic and medical research enterprise it is today because of the vision, passion, and generosity of those who believe in making a difference. They have dared to join us in dreaming great things for Birmingham and beyond, and as a result lives have been changed.
UAB is about empowering individuals to achieve at their highest potential and move ideas into action. The first generation college student, the young researcher, the tireless volunteer—they are UAB. UAB is about building community and making Birmingham a better place, but we are not bound by geographical limits. From service projects in Downtown Birmingham to work to eradicate AIDS in Zambia to establishing healthy communities in the Black Belt, UAB is a place with a local mission and a global vision.
Through this Web site, you can stay abreast of the many dreams that are becoming reality at UAB and be inspired by our collaborative community and bold pursuit of building a better, safer, healthier society together. Thank you for investing with us in the future of our University, our state, and our world. Thank you for being a part of the special vision that is UAB.
