Good news from SACS-COC visit to UAB A Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges reaffirmation committee completed its on-campus visit this week as part of UAB’s reaccreditation process. In an email to students, faculty and staff, Provost Linda Lucas shared positive preliminary results.

"While the committee’s report is preliminary and will not be final until reviewed and approved by the SACS-COC Board of Trustees, we could not have hoped for a better outcome at this point in the process. In its review of UAB’s adherence to the Principles of Accreditation, the committee requires no follow-up, and no formal recommendations were necessary for our Quality Enhancement Plan," Lucas said.
