At the University of Alabama at Birmingham, professors and administrators “care about you.” “For many of the professors, it’s not just about a grade in a class that you are taking. Rather it’s an experience and preparation for any of our further endeavors.” The professors here are “experts in their fields,” they’re “accessible and exciting,” and “they’re down-to-earth enough to give students a real view of what it’s like to enter the world of academia.” Despite the fact that this is a large university, there are “small class sizes in even the 100-level classes,” and “many professors are available for help outside the classroom and care about teaching their subjects to the students.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
