executiveAdministrators have an important role in securing the success of the university. However, faculty may not be aware of the impact of administrators’ efforts on the campus, or how the work of faculty can assist the efforts of administrators. The CTL Executive Presenter Series brings administrators and faculty together for discussion and collaboration. The series features UAB administrators at the vice president and vice provost level who will discuss with faculty their work and its impact on the university as a whole. 

Each workshop will be presented on select Fridays from 11:30-1 PM in CTL (EB 243). Lunch will be provided for all registered participants. Participation in each workshop earns attendees 10,000 Gold Points and a CTL Executive Series Badge.
