Students, faculty, staff and alumni from across the University of Alabama at Birmingham converged to develop a creed, or statement of belief, for our community. In reflection upon what it means to be a Blazer, the tenets of honor and integrity, diversity, innovation, service and scholarship rose to the top.

This is the Blazer Way.

At UAB, we take pride having a culture of service to each other and to our community. Walking out these principles together unites us, and serves as a bridge that stretches from the hospital to the university to the administration to our alumni. We are a UAB community.

This is the Blazer Way.

All year long, campus partners will lock arms to celebrate the Blazer Way through programs events and initiatives. This site will be a living, breathing celebration of those efforts. With pride, we will show our surrounding community, and the world, that to be a Blazer means to be intentional about everything that we do.
