Student Outreach, a function of the Office of Student Conduct & Outreach, assist students who may be struggling or distressed in some way by linking them to appropriate resources on or off campus. Staff meet with students to identify sources of stress and discuss individualized options to address those factors. The ultimate goal of the office is to help students reduce their stress and increase their support in order to be as successful as possible at UAB. Student Outreach serves as part of the UAB CARE Team (Communicate, Assess, Refer, Educate) to help develop strategies to support students experiencing academic, social, and crisis situations, including mental health concerns.
Student Outreach also coordinates Blazer Kitchen at Hill Student Center, one of the University's two on campus food pantry locations. Open to any active UAB student, the location provides access to perishable and non-perishable food, school supplies, and personal hygiene items.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham Division of Student Affairs oversees the University’s compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
