Frequently Asked Questions

NE ViewThe following information should help you gain a better understanding of the facts surrounding our building campaign and help you make an informed decision on how you can be a part of this opportunity to create a modern facility for the next generation of health care leaders.

If you have a question that has not been answered please contact our Director of Development Katie Adams by email, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or by phone, 205-996-5469, and she will be happy to answer your questions.

What is the SHP building campaign?
A building campaign is a school project that seeks pledged donations from alumni, faculty, staff and friends to pay for a major construction project. We have added a 5th and 6th floor to the SHP building. The state-of-the-art facilities provide our students and faculty more than 35,000 square feet of the most technologically up-to-date laboratory and classroom space.

Why is SHP adding floors?
We have experienced rapid growth and dramatic change - all while setting the standard for health care training and research. Since 2001, we've added approximately 800 students and many departments are spread among several buildings across UAB. With this expansion, those departments will now be able to consolidate and thereby improve outcomes on both the education and on the research side.

What do the additions provide?
The 5th floor will house the Department of Health Services Administration and provide space for its master and doctoral students. The 6th floor will house a state-of-the-art Executive Learning Center with 100 seats and two break-out rooms. The floor will also house two Physical Therapy labs, several conference rooms and the SHP Dean’s Administration offices.

“We don’t have the educational facilities we need, but in spite of all of that, we are turning out a great product. And I’m just thinking how much better we would be if we had the facilities to match the talent of the faculty as well as the talent of the students.”
~Jon Vice, campaign co-chair, MSHA alumnus (Class 47)

How much did the additions cost?
The total cost of the project is $13 million.

How were the additions financed?
The University of Alabama System Board of Trustees passed a $7 million bond to cover part of the cost. The School of Health Professions is responsible for the remaining $6 million.

What is the campaign goal?
Our goal is to raise the entire $6 million to cover all expenses.

The additions are complete in August, why do you still need to raise funds?
The money we paid up front, in order to get approval for the project as well as the bond, is money that comes from the school budget. This is money that is typically used to create cutting edge programs, recruit highly sought after faculty, and provide students with incomparable support.

Who is SHP asking to contribute?
Anyone who is interested in inspiring and impacting the dreams of current and future generations is welcome to contribute. We accept contributions from alumni, family, community foundations, corporations, friends and more.

Many institutions ask for support, why should I contribute to SHP?
The School of Health Professions has contributed to the growth of UAB and the city of Birmingham by long offering a world-class education to all who seek health care knowledge. Our faculty and staff are driven by an intense commitment to provide rigorous academics and diverse experiences. The new building additions will only increase our ability to make a difference in the health care world for generations to come.

SHPB head onIs my contribution tax deductible?
Yes. All gifts made to the SHP building campaign are tax deductible. We encourage you to always check with your tax advisor for more information.

How can I contribute?
Contributions of cash, check and credit card are accepted and appreciated. However, there are many other ways to contribute that you may wish to consider including payroll deduction for UAB employees; assets like stocks and bonds; and planned giving. There are also naming opportunities available if you wish to leave a legacy by commemorating a person, a group, an organization or a corporation.

Do I need to pay all at once?
No. You can make a pledge to pay a certain amount and that gift can be made over five years. Payments may be made annually, semi-annually, quarterly or monthly. There is also an option where your payments on that pledge begin when most convenient for you. Download our pledge form to learn more.

How much should I give?
Only you can answer this question. We will not presume to tell you what you should give. Your decision should be based on your ability to help and your interest in helping. And remember, all pledges and gifts matter, regardless of amount.

What if my financial situation changes?
Whether you find yourself in a better position and wish to give more or suffer an unforeseen setback and need to give less; you may update your commitment at any time.

How else can I help?
It all starts with your personal contacts and social networks (please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and LinkedIn). Select a list of friends, relatives and former classmates - who typically do not see your social media activity - to email asking them to contribute to our campaign. You can also contact us with names of people, groups, corporations or organizations that you feel would be interested in helping us achieve our goal.

Who has contributed so far?
We have 100 percent buy in from the Building Campaign Committee, faculty that will teach at the school in fall 2013 and the Dean's administrative office staff. We have received pledges from current students, former students, former faculty and people not associated with the school but who are dedicated to what we do.
