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 our low student-to-faculty ratio (18 to 1) and high percentage of terminally degreed faculty (67%), students enjoy close interaction, both inside and outside the classroom, with scholars in their chosen fields of study. 

We invite you to explore the many academic opportunities offered at the University of West Alabama, both on campus and online.
