UAB named to national list of 50 Advancing Women in STEM
UAB has been named one of 50 Colleges Advancing Women in STEM by The College Database, a leading not-for-profit resource for college-related data and rankings.
UAB earned distinction for its suite of programs in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with a high level of female enrollment and an impressive yearly female graduation rate.
“UAB’s STEM programs are consistently recognized for excellence, and we are honored that our commitment to fostering participation from outstanding female students and graduates has received this recognition,” said UAB Provost Linda Lucas, Ph.D., who is an engineer. “Encouraging women in these vital areas will remain a priority for us.”
Thousands of colleges and universities were researched for the final list.
“It’s vital that women are encouraged to participate in strong STEM programs like the University of Alabama at Birmingham offers to narrow the gender gap in these traditionally male arenas, academically and professionally,” said Sarah Durkin, managing director of The College Database. “As job opportunities shift in this direction, The College Database wants to recognize the colleges and universities advocating for women’s educational advancement in STEM.”
