A Message from the President – May 11, 2022

Dear Students, Faculty, Staff and Families,

Our UA community has completed another successful academic year! It launched with record-breaking enrollment, including the largest freshman class and Graduate School enrollment in UA history, the most freshmen from Alabama in a decade and a record 940 National Merit Scholars. It concluded with commencement this past weekend, with over 5,000 degrees conferred on the Class of 2022, comprising graduates from 31 countries and 50 states and 564 first-generation students.

Once again, our faculty and staff have equipped and empowered legendary students.

It is an honor for me to lead this great University, and I am pleased to share with you this video highlighting many of our accomplishments. Thank you for your role in our success.

Roll Tide!

Stuart R. Bell
