UAB School of Education faculty are working hard every day to change the world.

They are instructing the next generation of highly qualified teachers and administrators, educating students to deliver community counseling services, and making new discoveries to enhance the health and well-being of children and adults.

It is through their efforts that the School is able to organize meaningful internships and field experiences to help our students advance their education. Our faculty are also collaborating with both urban and rural school districts in Alabama to implement research-based programs that are improving learning outcomes and preparing P-12 students for college success.

Many of the School’s educational programs and services are made possible with the help of generous donations from our community partners, alumni, and friends like you. Your gifts are helping to create scholarships, fund critical programs and deliver essential equipment and materials for important research that aims to make P-12 schools and communities better.

The following were important philanthropic milestones for the SOE in 2014:

  • The Belk Foundation provided key support for UABTeach Mentor Teachers and student scholarships.
  • AT&T invested in the Innovative Learning Collaborative, helping to launch a pilot program at Parker High School that will teach students how to use technology in preparing for reading and writing success. Watch the video.
  • Memorial gifts helped create important financial support for The Maryann Manning Family Literacy Foundation.
  • Planned gifts provided significant funding for several School scholarships.
  • New scholarships for student tuition and financial support increased our scholarship offerings to more than 20.
    • Dr. Mabel C. Robinson Memorial Endowed Scholarship
    • The Early Childhood Education Graduate Student Award

Your Annual Gifts to the School not only provided scholarships, but also furnished a new meeting space for faculty, staff, and students.
