Issues and Ideas

The UAB Issues & Ideas Committee’s mission is to provide students with information about current issues and a forum in which to discuss them. We work to both address topics in which students have an interest, and to inform them of important issues that affect them of which they may not be aware. This can include local, national, or international political dilemmas as well as controversial ideas in academic disciplines. It is our hope that through such programming, students will expand their knowledge base outside the college classroom.
