Janet Herring and her husband, Mark, have established the Janet Herring Accounting Student Professional Development Program through a generous donation to The Campaign for UAB. The endowed program encourages female students to succeed in the workplace through professional development workshops, job shadowing and mentoring. The program exposes students to skills they need to succeed and are not provided in the classroom.
The UAB student chapter of the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA) located in the Collat School of Business was selected this year as part of UAB's 2017 Diversity Champtions. In support of UAB's commitment to diversity, this annual award honors employees, students and organizations that help create a more culturally diverse and inclusive university community through their achievement.
