UAB Community Week is a campus-wide celebration of the diversity that exists within the UAB Community. The week and many of its events are sponsored by Student Involvement Diversity Programs in conjunction with the Department of Student Life, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Office for Equity and Diversity. The programs and events are designed to create awareness of different cultures and social groups by way of art, food, and musical presentations. Community Week also encourages dialogue and celebrates different racial and ethnic groups by its diverse lectures, programs, and activities. One of the signature events of the week is the President’s Diversity Award Banquet. At this event, an undergraduate, graduate and professional school student along with a faculty and staff member, are given an award for their efforts in diversity.
