As your new dean, I am looking forward to working with you to build the College of Arts and Sciences.  The foundation was laid when three former UAB schools came together to form the innovative, interdisciplinary College of Arts and Sciences.  We now have the vision, the momentum and the resources needed to take the College to the next level.  Achieving our goals will require the commitment of all of us – the faculty, staff, administration, current students, alumni, donors and friends.

Over the next few months we will be developing the next phase of our strategic plans.  We want your participation and your input.  We want to hear from you.   Every member of the College can help us to refine current programs, stimulate new program development, evaluate our progress so far, and set goals for our future. 

If you've been considering reconnection with UAB and the College of Arts and Sciences, now is the perfect time.  Look for frequent updates to this site, including news and announcements, as well as invitations to special events and other opportunities for you to get involved.  Let’s do this together.  After all, it is YOUR COLLEGE.

Palazzo Final

Robert E. Palazzo, Ph.D.
