The Office of University Relations communicates the impact and initiatives of UAB to internal and external audiences and comprises Public Relations, Social Strategy, University Editorial Content, University Marketing, Visual Content and Web Operations. Our mission is to protect and propel the UAB brand to enhance awareness, engagement and support among key constituencies.

UAB News showcases compelling news and information for UAB and external audiences that is produced by Public Relations, University Editorial Content, University Marketing and Visual Content, as well as from professional communicators who represent UAB entities. This site, and its corresponding Twitter feed, provide the latest in how UAB is advancing knowledge that will change the world across every pillar of our multifaceted mission: the education of students, who are exposed to multidisciplinary learning and a new world of diversity; research, the creation of new knowledge; patient care, the outcome of “bench-to-bedside” translational knowledge; service to the community at home and around the globe, from free clinics in local neighborhoods to the transformational experience of the arts; and the economic development of Birmingham and Alabama.

UAB Public Relations works with students, faculty and staff, as well as the news media, to support the institution’s strategic goals and inform the public. Contact us for more information or to request interviews with UAB experts, including those within the UAB Health System.
