A world-renowned research university and medical center — a first choice for education and healthcare.
Bold. Ambitious. A bit audacious.
This is how such a vision might have seemed in UAB’s formative years, when a fledgling university and medical center in Birmingham set its sights on international prominence…
In 1936, when the University of Alabama established a modest extension center ...in a two-story clapboard house, with an enrollment of 116 students...
In 1945, when The Medical College of Alabama was established in Birmingham, and sought to recruit some of the brightest scientific and medical minds from around the globe...
Or in 1969, when these and other programs merged into the autonomous campus of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, whose first president laid out a vision so lofty that it struck some of his own faculty as “crazy”...
In the four decades since, this young, dynamic university has thrived on that same boldness and innovation to continue pushing the frontiers in science, medicine, business, education, the arts and the humanities – and has garnered national and international respect.
