University of Alabama to Launch 2020 United Way Campaign

Tide United: Let kindness be your story.

Each autumn, The University of Alabama conducts its annual UA United Way Campaign in support of the United Way of West Alabama (UWWA). The campaign, like so many things in 2020, will look a little different this year, but the goal — to support UWWA and, by extension, its 26 partner agencies — remains the same.

This year’s host college, the College of Communication and Information Sciences, will utilize the WVUA studio to share the 2020 UA United Way Campaign Kickoff via the College’s Facebook page ( on Thursday, Oct. 8, at 2 p.m.

All are invited to join WVUA news director and anchor Lynn Brooks and director of the Communication Studies speaking studio Dr. Adam Brooks, who are serving as campaign co-chairs, as well as University of Alabama President Stuart R. Bell, Dr. Mark Nelson, dean of the College of Communication and Information Sciences, other members of the campaign leadership, and Big Al.

We look forward to connecting with you on Facebook as together we launch another exciting United Way Campaign at The University of Alabama.
