Why does private giving matter at The University of Alabama?
Since 1831, The University of Alabama has been Alabama’s flagship university with a vision of being a world-class teaching and research institution focused on student excellence. We are indebted to the leaders of the past whose vision made the University what it is today. Now it is our time to nurture future generations by capitalizing on the foundation that has been laid.
Today, we are poised to take The University of Alabama to a higher level; a level of national prominence and recognition in academic excellence. Private gifts allow The University of Alabama to provide a margin of excellence for its students that cannot be accomplished with state and research funding alone.
Engineers are the foundation of this state’s economy. UA’s College of Engineering is committed to educating tomorrow’s engineers and computer scientists who will continue leading our state in the construction, automotive and high-tech industries. Generations of future engineers and the growing economy in Alabama are greatly affected by your contributions. Therefore, the University looks to its alumni and friends to provide support to this great institution as we impact the future of our state by educating tomorrow’s engineering leaders.
