The economic development vision stems from the University’s strategic plan that aims to increase impactful activities that affect economic and societal development. Created by UA’s Economic Development Council, the economic development plan helps the council prioritize, coordinate and align all UA economic development assets to ensure they help the University meet its economic development strategic goals.
The plan focuses on four priorities:
- Provide economic development services
- Prepare current and future workforce and retain talent in the state
- Start, recruit and partner with companies
- Measure and evaluate UA’s overall impact on the statewide economy
The University of Alabama reports notable accomplishments in the past two years toward its effort to spur statewide economic development as an innovative driver of growth and to strengthen economic activity.
