on this date in 1969 a university was
born a university destined to change forever when Birmingham shining steel air had
come to a halt we were there just a small light in a dark valley we started at
the bedside of a patient asking how are you and what can we do to help that’s a
place we’ve never left you see this city is our classroom this is our lab our
stage our study room our dining hall and our internships they’re on every block
this Magic City is our home and though her past is filled with both triumph and
trial we met hurt with healing and forged a new future for us all we’re a
research institution so we don’t just seek knowledge we want answers we invite
every question to be explored every voice heard every opportunity siezed that
invitation brought the best to Birmingham and what was once a small
light is now a bright skyline alive and thriving our people are from everywhere
they come here with a dream and they graduate not only with a degree but with
a shared spirit it’s the spirit to serve to truly make a
change and you only get that from working with what’s real
no college bubble here no gated entrances no we do higher education in
the real world will you join us where the city is your classroom
