The University of Alabama at Birmingham’s mission is to enrich the academic experience for each student through education, research, and service. The University believes disability is an essential component of diversity on our campus and values the unique experiences of each student.

Our philosophy promotes self-awareness, self-determination and self-advocacy by providing education to students with disabilities about their rights and responsibilities so they can make informed choices in order to meet or exceed the standards of all students at UAB.
