Our entire UA System – UA, UAB, UAH and the UAB Health System – is dedicating all possible resources to reopen our campuses in a manner that will be the gold standard for colleges and universities across the nation. While we do not know when our students will return, when they do we will be ready to welcome them to the safest campuses in America. Chancellor Finis St. John has established a System-wide Task Force to meet our goals using strategies of all kinds: testing measures, enhanced cleaning, classroom procedures, housing policies, security and wellness programs, and more.
