Collat raises money for student suits through Crowdfunding effort

Many students can’t afford the professional attire they need to wear to job interviews. On-campus career fairs can be especially difficult for these students.

For the past two years, UAB's Collat School of Business faculty and staff have stepped up to provide assistance through monetary and clothing donations with the launch of the Suit Up Collat program.

This year, the school decided to ramp up its efforts by opening up participation to all UAB faculty, staff, and alumni, as well as the community, giving all an opportunity to make a direct and tangible impact on students’ lives and career trajectories.
