Students and faculty members of the Department of Government celebrated some big milestones at UAB's 2013 Spring Commencement.
Students and faculty in UAB Department of Government played a large role in last year's UAB Votes initiative. From writing blogs to staffing events to participating in the Democratic and Republican conventions, our students represented the department and helped to promote voting in local, statewide, and federal elections.
Birmingham Mayor William A. Bell visited the Department of Government to help celebrate UAB's Civil Rights Movement commemoration. One of the many ways the College of Arts and Sciences is remembering and celebrating the 50th anniversary of the transformative civil rights events of 1963 is with special classes, and the Department of Government is a proud participant.
