    Education Access and Success

    Campus and Community Engagement administers numerous programs - and works in partnership with various UAB programs - to support collegiate access, academic development, and ultimately the success of students and other lifelong learners along all stages of the educational pathway. Some initiatives offer incentives and support for academic success, while others provide dual high school and college credit, tutoring, mentoring, and interactive conversations with families about what it takes to prepare students for college, graduate school or professional school.

    Community Building

    We seek to capitalize off of UAB's rich history of engagement, community service, and service learning. These programs continue to play an important role in helping our students learn from and about communities that may be different from their own. CACE works to accomplish this goal by leveraging the university's intellectual resources to cultivate collaborations that address significant issues in surrounding communities as students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to consider their agency.
