BLAZE provides opportunities for select faculty and senior staff to:

  1. enhance leadership and management skills
  2. learn more about the administrative functions at the university
  3. network with others who are in similar positions across campus
BLAZE relies on project-based learning, real world case studies, expert speakers and panels, peer to peer consultation, and other interactive formats to build skills and relationships. We hope that BLAZE leads to the following outcomes:

  • Develops authentic leaders who are optimistic, confident and resilient and who demonstrate UAB’s core competencies.
  • Creates a culture that recruits, retains and develops the best and the brightest; ensuring a diverse mix of people are given the opportunity for leadership development.
  • Further enhances a collaborative and inclusive culture at UAB.
