As the second annual creed week begins, there will be several special celebrations to highlight honor, integrity, diversity, innovation, service and scholarship, the components that define UAB’s creed.


Cookies and Creed Connections

Throughout Creed Week, students can head to the Hill Student Center and the Commons on the Green to join in fun events to receive a free cookie. Along with a sweet treat, students will also have the chance to collect creed week related goodies.

Just Mercy Student Movie Night

Spark Your Fire Arts Competition

Also Wednesday, there will be an art competition in the Hill Center Ballroom where students will submit any form of art that represents one of the five points of UAB’s creed. This event is being hosted by the Blazer Spirit Council and all students are welcome.


Dragon Tales

The USGA has created a short movie that displays nominated members of UAB’s faculty that are considered to represent the creed through the work they do on campus.
