UA’s mission to enhance lives through teaching, research, and service remains paramount in our quest to advance educational, socioeconomic, and scientific progress.
Our entire campus community understands that the work we do directly impacts the lives of Alabamians and that is a responsibility we do not take lightly. The dedication of our faculty and staff is underscored by the success of our students and alumni.
As our state and country continue to experience change, one thing remains consistent – UA’s impact is strong, and that impact is growing. In 2021, UA enrolled the largest freshman class in the University’s history; announced record-breaking Graduate School enrollment; and launched The Rising Tide Capital Campaign, the largest fundraising campaign in state history. These were just a few of our major accomplishments over the last year.
This report presents an overview of the impact The University of Alabama has made on the state of Alabama and its individual counties. We remain appreciative of our elected officials, community and industry partners, and the citizens we serve for their continued support. I have no doubt that generations of Alabamians will be positively impacted by our collective efforts for years to come.

President, The University of Alabama
