Serendipity Dance Club at the Hardin Center by Joseph Giri - Gadsden, AL
The University of Alabama Center for Economic Development (UACED) was founded by Dr. Malcolm Portera and approved by the Board of Trustees of The University of Alabama System in 1989. It serves as an economic outreach unit to access UA resources, expertise, and existing UA centers and programs to assist businesses, organizations, and state and local communities to help solve real world problems and grow the state's economy. The Center continues that tradition today by utilizing professional UA staff and customized project teams to provide technical assistance to communities, agencies, and organizations. It takes an asset-based planning approach to help communities and organizations respond to challenges and capitalize on a variety of economic development opportunities for growth.

Have you heard about Alabama murals?
Do you love murals, or does your community have a mural you want to show off?
Love You to the Moon by Anna Swatzell - Huntsville, AL
The University of Alabama Center for Economic Development (UACED) wants to know about your community murals. We are in the process of creating a statewide mural trail and our first step is inventorying all existing murals in Alabama. After we have a good inventory of the existing ones we will then begin taking suggestions for locations for new ones!
If you have any questions please contact Candace Johnson, (205) 348-8338 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and we look forward to seeing
your community murals.
