Our Mission

 

The Alliance for LGBTQ Equality at UAB exists to support and advance the UAB Strategic Diversity Plan through inclusion of "the full range of human difference and potential that manifests itself in individual members of the campus community"* including those who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) members of the campus community and their allies.

The Alliance seeks to enrich diversity and contribute to a high quality intellectual, cultural, educational, and work environment for all members of UAB, the UAB Health System (UABHS), the UA Health Services Foundation (UAHSF), and the Callahan Eye Foundation. The Alliance exists to ensure the equitable treatment of LGBTQ administrators, faculty, and staff; their allies, and the spouses/partners and families of these entities while simultaneously strengthening UAB's ability to recruit and retain top employees, thereby empowering UAB to serve the community and the world.
