The University of Alabama is seeking volunteers for a study on severe weather events. The university’s Center for Advanced Public Safety is doing a study to see how people prepare and react to severe weather events. Organizers will conduct remote interviews of participants before, during and after a bad weather event during the 2021 spring severe weather season. Researchers will contact participants as forecast of severe weather become available.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
