Giving to the Department of Mathematics

Student working on a math problem. The Department of Mathematics and UAB's College of Arts and Sciences could not do what we do without your support. Traditional revenues such as tuition, fees, federal grants, and state funds provide for daily work, but they often vary with the level of state revenues and enrollments. Gifts from you create a secure, concrete foundation for our future success. They benefit not only students and faculty but also the community as a whole.

The Department is excited to participate in the largest and most comprehensive campaign in UAB's history. The Campaign for UAB: Give Something, Change Everything will have a scope and impact that will extend well beyond our campus and has the potential to create long-lasting, positive change.
