Creating a Lasting Impact

The University of Alabama remains committed to our mission to impact and enhance lives through teaching, research, and service.

I am grateful to our faculty, staff, and students for their relentless dedication to the University and to the communities that we serve. UA has continued to positively impact public health, educational opportunities, and the overall quality of life for Alabamians.

Our impact on the state has expanded to support Alabamians during the pandemic. From providing testing in Tuscaloosa and in rural areas, to continuing to identify ways to enhance educational and research opportunities for students at all academic levels, we have adapted programming and resources to meet the needs of our state. We also continue to provide support to business and industry partners in support of our economy.

This report provides a summary of the impact The University of Alabama has made on the state of Alabama during this most recent year. We greatly appreciate our elected officials, community, and industry partners for their continued collaboration. Our cumulative efforts will positively impact the state for generations to come.
