It's time to roll up our sleeves, UA.

the rising tide

We are each like drops of water, limited in what we can accomplish on our own. But, together, we are collected in The University of Alabama’s rising tide. This is a wave that begins deep within, a roar that resounds in us all, the Roll Tide that crescendos through time, the mighty voice of one body.
This is The Rising Tide.

Together, we will surge forward to achieve a historic $1.5 billion fundraising goal to elevate all areas of campus while adding 1,000 new endowed scholarships and 75 new faculty endowments. It will impact more than 500,000 square feet of space across campus. And, through the Crimson Standard, The Rising Tide will raise more than $600 million for Athletics.
Join The Rising Tide.
