The University of Alabama is an incredibly special place. The energy, opportunities and sense of community on campus are second to none. As a three-time UA graduate, I know first-hand the impact that this University has on students’ lives. I am proud to serve our students as vice president for Student Life.

I am passionate about student success, and believe that the Division of Student Life truly maximizes each UA student’s learning experiences. We expand upon our students’ classroom experiences, support their health and wellbeing, and provide outstanding leadership opportunities.

From intramural sports to career exploration, the programs and services within the Division of Student Life maximize each student’s learning experiences and support students’ academic success. Our dedicated professionals are committed to fostering student development, encouraging learning and discovery, and supporting students’ transition to, and graduation from, The University of Alabama.

Each student’s journey through college is different and so is the experience that he or she will have through involvement inside and outside of the classroom. I encourage every student to explore the avenues for engagement offered within the Division of Student Life. Our staff members are ready to challenge, encourage, and support students each step of the way.

Student Life is part of a large team invested in student success, and I am proud that our many partners include parents and faculty. Collaboration with faculty enhances the learning opportunities in many of our programs. Parents, of course, play vital roles in their students’ success. I hope that parents will explore the resources available through Parent & Family Programs. Working together, we will form a network of support behind every student at UA.

Roll Tide,
Dr. Myron L. Pope
Vice President for Student Life
