Vision and Mission in Action

We are driven by results. In 2017, when we realized we had met or exceeded 85 percent of our 2013-2018 Strategic Plan, we updated and expanded our goals and objectives.

Our 2017 Annual Report is a road map so you can see all we accomplished leading up to 2017 - where we traveled and how we got there. It is also a time machine so you can see all we will accomplish in the future and how we will get there.

Our School is multi-dimensional and more than just figures on paper. We brag that we have 16,000+ alumni and are home to UAB’s top-ranked program – but what does that really look like?

We created Snapshots: Impressions of SHP Alumni Excellence to capture the heart of who who our alumni are. Our alumni are an active community located around the world who find creative ways that capitalize on unique talents to give back to the School and in turn those that matter the most – our more than 2,000 students.
