#UABUnited

#UABUnited encourages UAB faculty, staff, and students to take necessary steps to ensure the safety and well being of the UAB community. It aims to remove the awkwardness of wearing a mask, and encourages practicing social distancing, washing your hands frequently, staying at home when you're sick, and incorporating Healthcheck as part of your routine. The campaign brings the UAB community together for a time of unity when we all need it the most.

Help UAB Fight COVID-19

Help UAB Fight COVID-19

In response to the current global coronavirus pandemic, UAB launched the Help UAB Fight COVID-19 campaign in the spring of 2020. The campaign drives traffic to one central web resource, https://www.uab.edu/fightcovid19, to donate money or PPE supplies, track your symptoms, express thanks, find helpful resources, and more. The official campaign hash tag, #UABFightsCovid, is encouraged across related social media posts, and pre-written messages with images are available via the "Share the Message" function. The campaign will grow and continue as long as COVID-19 resources are needed.

Be Seen In Green

Be Seen In Green

UAB has a growing tradition of wearing green on Fridays to show your Blazer spirit. To build upon the momentum of this tradition, UAB partnered with Burton Advertising in 2019 to develop graphics and a video. Graphics were updated in 2020 to showcase how the tradition can carry on while isolated at home during the coronavirus pandemic. The spirit of the campaign echos the essence of our tradition: wearing green together on Fridays fosters a unifying sense of Blazer pride amongst everyone at UAB, from students to staff, medical center and beyond. We're all Blazers.

“UAB. Powered by will.” was a year-long marketing campaign promoting UAB's passion for research, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Spotlighting some of the individual faces and stories behind UAB's most innovative thinkers, the campaign posed the question: "Who will be part of the next generation of great thinkers?" UAB partnered with Lewis Communications to develop creative assets for the campaign, which was featured widely across local TV, Blazer Express buses, t-shirts, promotional items, e-mail footers, and more.
