Nancy Fouad CareyDear UAB Family and Friends,

Welcome to the UAB National Alumni Society. I am honored to be the NAS President for 2018-2019 and to represent the 125,000 UAB alumni throughout the world.

This year is sure to be an exciting one for UAB and its alumni, students, faculty and staff as our beloved institution turns 50! UAB is looking better than ever. As we celebrate this significant milestone, it is a great time to reflect on what is happening on campus.

The Collat School of Business, UAB Police Department, and Intramural & Club Sports all opened new facilities in Fall 2018, and the School of Nursing unveiled its newly renovated building. Meanwhile, new facilities for the College of Arts & Sciences, UAB ROTC, Beach Volleyball team, a new track venue and Alabama’s first Proton Therapy Center are all under construction.

That’s not all though. UAB continues to blossom into an incredible academic and research institution:

  • #1 – U.S. ranking (Top 10 worldwide) in the 2018 Young University Rankings
  • 13 programs in top 25, U.S. News & World Report 2019 “America’s Best Graduate Schools”
  • 6 students & alumni selected for 2018 Fulbright Student Program
  • $562M – total research expenditures at UAB exceeded in 2017
  • 10 specialties among nation’s top 50 programs of their kind in 2018-2019 Best Hospitals report from U.S. News & World Report

Additionally, in 2018, the NAS awarded over 40 scholarships to more than 120 students.  The NAS is proud to be an active partner with the UAB community and a resource for current students.

During my term as President, I look forward to the opportunity to further the NAS’s mission and engage with our alumni. Throughout the year, the NAS hosts Uncork Education, the Scholarship Run 5K/10K, Excellence in Business Top 25, Rising Star Awards, Tailgates and many more. I hope to see you at one of these events.

Go Blazers!

2016 Nancy
