A message from the president of UAH.

Dear Charger Community,

I want to commend each of you for a truly great start of the semester! This has been an exciting time on campus, as UAH has received good news on a number of fronts marking significant accomplishments.

For the fifth time in program history, our Chargers won the 2022 Gulf South Conference Men's Basketball Championship. And, 45 undergraduates were recognized for excellence in research and creative scholarship at the eighth annual Research Horizons Poster Session.

In addition, UAH has achieved “R1 – Very high research activity” status, the highest research activity rating, in the most recent update of the Carnegie Classification of Institutes of Higher Education. And a former eminent scholar and two UAH graduates, Dr. Michael Griffin, Dr. Lisa Watson-Morgan and Jeffrey Langhout, respectively, were inducted into the State of Alabama Engineering Hall of Fame.

After all your hard work, I know you are ready for a fun, well-deserved break. So I want to take this time to encourage you to be safe and monitor the weather, especially if you are making travel plans. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for much of North AL and southern middle TN beginning at 9:00 p.m. this evening. Snow and ice covered roadways are possible and travel could be difficult. Please be prepared to alter travel plans.

With the threat of winter weather ahead, now seems to be a perfect time to encourage each of our students, faculty and staff to keep their UAlert contact preferences up to date and consider downloading the Rave Guardian app (available for Android and iOS devices).

Lastly, when we come back from Spring Break, masks will be optional in most circumstances. Individuals may choose to continue to wear them even when they are not required. Please respect each individual’s choice and continue to be the caring community that I know you are.

Thank you, and GO CHARGERS!

Charles L. Karr
Interim President
