University of Alabama professor Dr. Marcia Hay-McCutcheon and students are taking a hearing clinic on the road to rural Alabama counties. Hear Here Alabama! was launched by Hay-McCutcheon with the mission of diagnosing hearing loss and providing treatment services using a mobile clinic equipped with all the necessary tools – and completely free of charge! Since 2013, 39 UA students have had the opportunity to be involved with this service and research project.

Congratulations to #UA senior Stephen Peter Rowe! Stephen was recently named the recipient of the 2016 Capstone Engineering Society Outstanding Senior Award. One of Rowe’s many accomplishments includes co-authoring a successful proposal to NASA for a team of UA students to participate in Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams contest and leading the team’s design of a space-walking tool for the Asteroid Redirect Mission.

A message from President Bell:
At 5:13 p.m. on April 27, 2011, an EF4 tornado touched down in Tuscaloosa, cutting a path of destruction and taking many lives. This week, while we acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of survivors, and the progress made since then, we also remember those we lost.
Today at 5:13 p.m. Denny Chimes will sound 53 times in honor of those who died in Tuscaloosa County, including six of our students and one of our employees. Please join me at that time as we pause to remember their lives and reflect upon the legacy they left us.

Capstone 101 gives you the opportunity to learn more about our extraordinary students! Click below to meet the Rogers triplets and see how their education at #UA helped them to discover their own differences and explore their diverse career interests. #RollTide
They share similar interests and tastes, and they often finish each other’s sentences. There was never a doubt they would go to the same college, but the idea that they would grow into different careers was definitely a new one. “This is our first time to ever have different interests,” says 22-year…

This afternoon, President Stuart R. Bell announced the four pillars of The University of Alabama’s new strategic plan during a bi-annual meeting with faculty and staff.

#UA professor David Dixon is serving as the principal investigator of a multi-institutional team currently working to find chemical methods to clean up nuclear waste. Utilizing the Titan supercomputer at the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (a Department of Energy Office of Science User Facility), the team is looking to understand the chemical reactions taking place with actinides. By examining actinide chemistry at the molecular level, the team hopes to design methods to clean up contamination and safely store spent nuclear fuel. Read more about #TideResearch below.

A note from University of Alabama President Stuart Bell:
Five years ago this week, the City of Tuscaloosa and The University of Alabama experienced a disaster unlike any other our city has experienced.
On April 27, 2011, an EF4 tornado tore through Tuscaloosa. That day 207 tornadoes touched down across the country, killing 319 people, in what was the largest tornado outbreak in U.S. history. Sixty-two of these tornadoes either began, moved through, or ended in Alabama, killing 238 people, including six of our students and one employee who had taken refuge off campus.
Incredibly, our campus escaped the tornado’s path. Then, and now, we remain proud of the way our city responded to this tragedy and how our students, faculty and staff pitched in to help with food, clothing, clean-up and general assistance.
Since that devastating day, the University has opened three tornado shelters on campus, and seven other shelters have opened throughout the city. Bustling retail developments and new housing have risen from the destruction, but we will never forget April 27, 2011.
As we pause to remember this historic day, we want to share this two-minute reflection of a day that will be etched in our hearts and minds forever.
Stuart R. Bell
Five years later, we remember all those affected by the storms of 4/27/11, and pay tribute to Tuscaloosa's ongoing recovery.

Engineering student Sarah McFann is the first student at The University of Alabama to be awarded the Hertz Fellowship. Majoring in chemical engineering with minors in chemistry, biology and UA’s Computer-Based Honors Program, Sarah is also involved in tutoring and outreach initiatives aimed at inspiring those who are underrepresented in STEM-related careers to pursue an education in science and engineering. As a Hertz Fellow, she will pursue her doctorate in chemical and biological engineering at Princeton University. Read more about this fellowship and her research - on and off campus - at the link below. Congratulations, Sarah! #TideResearch #RollTide
