Welcome to the University of West Alabama. The UWA faculty are fully committed to fulfilling the University’s stated mission: “To provide opportunities for students to pursue a quality education and assist in developing the important qualities of independent thinking, respect for the ideas of others, personal integrity and character in order to realize their quests for a philosophy of life and self-fulfillment.”
In accordance with this mission, we at UWA work toward educating the total person and equipping each of our graduates with the knowledge and skills for a fulfilling career and a fulfilling life.
With the University’s low student-to-faculty ratio (18 to 1) and high percentage of terminally degreed faculty (85%), students enjoy close interaction, both inside and outside the classroom, with scholars in their chosen fields of study.
I invite you to explore the many academic opportunities offered at the University of West Alabama, both on campus and online, at the links provided on this page.
