UAB’s vision is to be an internationally renowned research university — a first choice for education and health care.
UAB’s mission is to be a research university and academic health center that discovers, teaches and applies knowledge for the intellectual, cultural, social and economic benefit of Birmingham, the state and beyond.
Under the leadership of President Ray L. Watts, who took office in February 2013, UAB is engaging in the most comprehensive strategic planning process in the history of the institution.
Budget challenges at the state and federal level make it more important than ever to plan thoroughly, study carefully and prioritize effectively — both to live within our means and also ensure the mission is furthered.
“UAB is experiencing great momentum, and we are working hard to strengthen our position as one of the nation’s most productive and dynamic universities,” Watts said. “We will accomplish this by aligning our resources with our priorities.”
First and foremost, our plan will embody our commitment to educate, advance research and discovery, care for the sick, respond to the needs of our community and use knowledge to establish Alabama as a progressive economic center that can change the world.
UAB will establish priorities and guide investments in projects that are mission-critical, especially people, programs and technology. It also will inform the priorities for the largest and most comprehensive philanthropic campaign in the university’s history, The Campaign for UAB, Give Something, Change Everything, that will extend through 2017. – Find out more

Samford’s mission and core values are an extension of the original mission of our forerunner, Howard College. Founded in 1841 in Marion, Alabama, Howard College provided education for young men living along the old southwestern frontier—an area filled with vice and violence, but a growing revivalist spirit. When classes began on January 3, 1842, the new college emphasized four guiding principles: Intellect (guided by the tenets of Scottish philosophy), Faith (rooted in Evangelical Christianity and the Second Great Awakening), Virtue (influenced by the British Enlightenment), and Benevolence (grounded in the moral reforms of the age). One of the founders of Howard College, the Reverend James H. DeVotie of New York, suggested that the trustees name the institution after John Howard—a noted British reformer of the 18th Century who served as a role model of the four guiding principles. The curriculum reflected these values with the goal of educating young men (and later women) to be enlightened, virtuous Christian citizens.
Anchored in Christian understanding, Samford University will be a diverse community, stressing vigorous learning and personal faith, in the Baptist tradition. Within that commonality, the Community will be innovative in teaching, learning and research; sensitive to global issues; aggressive in self-assessment and continuous improvement. Faithful to its mission, Samford will be known and acknowledged worldwide by holding to its core values. The world will be better for it. – Find out more
