  • Suit Up Collat
    Many business students can’t afford the professional attire they need to wear to job interviews. On-campus career fairs can be especially difficult for these students. For the past two years, CSOB faculty and staff have stepped up to provide assistance through monetary and clothing donations. The program began two years ago as an initiative to get all business students, faculty and staff to dress professionally for the UAB Career Fair. When some students confided in faculty and staff that they did not have a suit and could not afford to purchase one, the Collat Career Services office organized a suit exchange in which faculty and staff donated gently used suits that were paired with students in need. Some faculty and staff donated money to purchase new professional clothing while others went shopping and brought items for students. This year we wanted to open up participation to all UAB faculty, staff, and alumni so that everyone can be a part of this very special program that has a direct and tangible impact on our student’s lives and career trajectory. Searching for a job is a stressful life event, and our students deserve the confidence that comes from looking professional and polished! Monies donated to this fund will be used to purchase professional clothing, such as suits, slacks, blazers, shirts, and ties in advance of the spring UAB Career Fair. Partner with us and make difference in the lives of our students. Make your gift today.
