University Partners


In addition to relationships with academic departments across the University, The Center for Ethics & Social Responsibility’s work is supported by collaborations with other distinctive programs at the University of Alabama.


Honors College

Consisting of the University Honor’s Program (UHP), the Computer-Based Honors Program (CBHP), and the International Honors Program (IHP), the Honors College’s mission is the recruiting, educating, and promoting of the best and brightest students.


Community Service Center

The Purpose of the Community Service Center is to engage students and faculty in community-based learning through service.  The Center serves the campus by linking students to service through curricular and non-curricular experience, assisting faculty with strategies for connecting services to curriculum, and building partnerships with the community.


Office of Community Affairs

The Office of Community Affairs seeks to 1) combine the capacity of a major research university with community partners in an effort to expand the classroom for our students and faculty while assisting in improving the quality of life in local and regional communities, and 2) address the changing cultural demographics taking place within the internal campus community by implementing strategies that increase the cultural competency of the campus and foster an inclusive campus environment that promotes tolerance and values diversity.


Creative Campus      

The Creative Campus Creative Community Initiative of the University of Alabama seeks to broaden the scope and deepen the experience of arts and cultural events on campus and in the community through collaboration, cohesion, and connectivity.


Crossroads Community Center

The Crossroads Community Center provides campus leadership and oversight in the areas of cultural programming and intercultural education.


New College

New College was established in 1970 to provide an opportunity for highly motivated undergraduates to have greater flexibility in forming a curriculum leading to a bachelor of science or bachelor of arts degree. The two major objectives of New College are to create an opportunity for a highly individualized education that enables students to draw from the resources of all University classes and faculty, and to serve as an experimental unit with the expectation of exporting successful innovations to other sectors of the University.



Local and National Partners




Impact: An Alabama Student Service Initiative

Impact is Alabama's first statewide nonprofit organization dedicated to developing and implementing substantive service-learning projects in coordination with select universities, junior colleges, and technical schools throughout the state.



Alabama Poverty Project

The primary purpose of APP is to provide information that promotes a better understanding of the nature of poverty--its complex causes, prevalence and persistence in Alabama. APP is especially interested in facilitating coalitions between religious, business and higher education organizations dedicated to empowering the poor and eliminating poverty.





Campus Compact     

Campus Compact is a national coalition of more than 950 college and university presidents - representing some five million students - dedicated to promoting community service, civic engagement, and service-learning in higher education.  The University of Alabama has been a member of Campus Compact since the initiation of the Center in Fall 2005.





American Association of Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) 

The mission of the Association of American Colleges and Universities is to make the aims of liberal learning a vigorous and constant influence on institutional purpose and educational practice in higher education.
