The University of Alabama Center for Economic Development (UACED), directed by Nisa Miranda, serves as a gateway to the University of Alabama in providing economic development resources. UACED has been in existence since 1987 and provides community-based strategic planning in support of local economic development efforts, primarily in the economically distressed parts of the state. UACED staff provide guidance to communities in leveraging other University resources and partners with the specific focus on community development and capacity building at all levels. Our mission is to assist communities as they prepare to take advantage of economic development opportunities for growth which puts them in a better position to support existing businesses as well as to create and attract new investments and jobs.
