In fewer than six months, 1,343 faculty, staff and students logged more than 10,000 combined hours of community service in BlazerPulse, a platform launched in January to promote, organize and measure UAB’s impact in the community. If you're hoping to top the leader board, Michelle Henry is the one to catch.

Terms for the newly elected officers and senators begin Sept. 1. A list of senators and alternates is on the UAB Faculty Senate website.

UAB health plans cover preventive vaccinations, including MMR, at 100% for children — and adults. Do you need one? Are you sure?

Although most campus operations will be suspended on this day, including bus and van service, essential services will continue.

Four training sessions are planned in May to help faculty, staff and students learn to use BlazerPulse, an online platform adopted to promote community engagement.

The results are encouraging and also offer insight on ways to continue to improve.


John Meador has announced that he will retire in early 2020 after 50 years as a university librarian, and UAB will begin a national search for a new dean.

Timothy Wick, senior associate dean in the School of Engineering, will become its interim dean Aug. 15, replacing Iwan Alexander, who plans to join the faculty.

Unit-level results will be provided to senior leadership April 10, and campuswide results will be shared in two events April 18.

Andrew J. Butler, Ph.D., is expected to start at UAB July 1.
