Introducing the New UAB Mission, Vision and Values

As an organization whom prides itself on growth and development, University Activities Board underwent an intensive Mission Review Project during the 2016-2017 Academic Year, lead by UAB Manager Cathy Fitzpatrick and UAB Graduate Assistant Sam Kilgour, in order to ensure that we are aligned with not only best practices in the collegiate field, but also with the university. The ending result has produced a succinct, purpose-driven and student-centered Mission, Vision and Values platform which will help guide and ensure the continued excllent programming of the organization. We are excited to begin our journey under our new Mission, Vision, and Values platform.
