The College of Arts and Sciences welcomes Lisa Tamiris Becker as the first Director of the Abroms-Engel Institute for the Visual Arts (AEIVA).
Congratulations to these highly accomplished, hardworking, and talented individuals in the College of Arts and Sciences.
When David Shealy, Ph.D., professor and chair of the Department of Physics, accepted an assistant professor position at UAB in 1973, he had no idea he would one day be honored for more than 40 years of service to the university. He even came close to leaving on one occasion, before deciding he was more interested in teaching and research at UAB. One of Shealy's professors at the University of Georgia, where he earned baccalaureate and doctoral degrees in physics, helped him get the job at UAB. Shealy said at that time the university, which was formally founded in 1969, was very modest.
