Students who are close to completing their bachelor’s degrees should make plans to join us for our Virtual Graduate Studies Preview event on April 13.
The online event will help you learn about our master’s degree and doctoral programs, as well as the value they offer in your professional and academic growth.
Challenging white supremacy: Roots and responses
University of Alabama professors Bryan Fair and Richard Fording will discuss the history and roots of white supremacy and nationalism, as well as appropriate strategies to combat the threats they pose, during an April 6 event co-hosted by AUM’s Southern Poverty Law Center on Campus and NAACP chapters.
Fair serves as the Thomas E. Skinner Professor of Law, while Fording is the Marilyn Jones Elmore and John Durr Elmore Endowed Professor of Political Science.

Spring into a World of Art
AUM’s Office of Global Initiatives will offer an afternoon of food and fun on Thursday, April 8, from 1-4 p.m. on The Quad that celebrates the creativity and cultural diversity of our campus.
