Ways to Give

Optometry Building and Renovation Fund

One of the UAB School of Optometry’s top priorities is to secure funding for renovations of the Henry B. Peters Building. Part of the renovation plans is the expansion of the Clinical Evaluation of Visual Systems (CEVS) to include 15 exam lanes, one of which will be an exact replica of the National Board Examination Room, and an adjoining classroom with video access to each lane. Existing standard classrooms will be replaced with flexible classrooms to allow for more small group discussions, analysis and collaboration.

The third-floor updates will bring an even greater focus to the student experience. A large student lounge will create a much-needed location for daytime breaks, late-night study sessions and general gatherings. An new locker room and student activity offices located will be located nearby. The UAB School of Optometry’s Office for Student Affairs will also move to the third floor to give students greater access for daily interactions with staff.

Through this fund, the UAB School of Optometry seeks to invest in better facilities and technology that will provide the following benefits:

  • The attraction of high quality students, faculty and staff;
  • The enhancement of the school’s ability to educate students through optimizing leading edge technology and optometric education;
  • The enhancement of faculty, staff and student interactions.
