UAB aims to be a first choice in education and healthcare. In just forty years, this young, dynamic university has grown into an internationally known institution that is respected for its research and innovation; a first choice for students, patients, researchers, and others. This is due in no small part to its faculty and staff who are committed to working collaboratively to push the envelope. UAB leadership emphasizes the professional development of our faculty and staff as the foundation of our ability to continue on this growth trajectory.

The goal of the BLAZE leadership academy is to prepare high potential faculty and staff to take on positions of senior leadership and become the stewards of UAB’s future. BLAZE does this by providing an intensive leadership development program that combines:
  • Team projects
  • Case studies
  • Skill building
  • Expert speakers and panels
  • Peer to peer consultation
  • Networking opportunities
