Student Life

College students today experience many exciting opportunities but they are also enduring more stress than ever before. The weight of recent global events and increased educational expenses place emotional and economic pressure on students and their families. To match these pressures, we at UA Student Life seek philanthropic gifts for scholarships, program support, research and facility enhancements. These gifts will allow our students to better focus on their studies and participate in cocurricular activities that will enrich their student experience at the Capstone. Student Life opportunities promote engaged learning, holistic health and well-being, leadership development and student success. As we support our students through their time on campus, we see The Rising Tide propelling students toward success in their professional and civic lives. The Rising Tide Capital Campaign is a watershed opportunity for alumni, students and families, faculty and staff, patrons and supporters to play a part in shaping our students, and in many cases, changing their trajectory for the better. We have a renewed sense of purpose and a strong vision for the future at the Capstone, investing in key focus areas for a greater tomorrow.

Letter From The Vice President

The Division of Student Life at The University of Alabama is committed to maximizing student learning experiences. We support students by providing them with essential resources and opportunities within the campus community so they can thrive as they participate in co-curricular activities designed to develop them into engaged learners.

Our division is comprised of over 20 departments, and our staff is dedicated to seeing students succeed in all areas of life. In our efforts to ensure students have ample opportunities for holistic wellness and personal growth, we offer support via numerous initiatives across campus including Housing and Residential Communities, the Career Center, Fraternity and Sorority Life and the Counseling Center, among many others.

Our learning and development goals provide a framework for our programs and initiatives to ensure that all of our activities are intentional, effective and student-focused. We must remain diligent to consistently enhance these activities so we can continue to attract and support the students of our present and future, increasing the overall value of their UA degree.

Join us in our endeavor to empower every student to thrive and succeed during and beyond their time at the Capstone.

Roll Tide,

Steven Hood, EdD
