Student Engagement

The Office of Student Engagement is committed to integrating student learning in all its forms, facilitating student development and embracing opportunities for meaningful engagement and retention. Established as a student-centered resource for support, guidance and accountability, this office has three components: Case Management, Non-Academic Student Conduct and Educational Outreach.

Case Management

  • Working with students to identify and overcome stressors and concerns that may be interfering with personal or academic success, a case manager connects students to on or off campus resources and provides supports to those experiencing recent hospitalizations, personal or family emergencies and mental health concerns.

Non-Academic Student Code of Conduct

  • The Code provides for the safety and well-being of the university environment and encourages responsible decision making through accountability. Students may contact the Office of Student Engagement if experiencing any of the following: threatening or inappropriate behavior, harassment, stalking, sexual misconduct, relationship violence, or alcohol or drug abuse. For the full student conduct code, visit http://www.uab.edu/handbook/f-policies-procedures/studentconduct.

Educational Outreach

  • The Office of Student Engagement also provides educational outreach to the campus community on other relevant issues students may face.
