This funding is part of the $42.8 million that Rep. Sewell secured in the Fiscal Year 2023 government funding package for local projects in Alabama’s 7th Congressional District. It will be used to provide meaningful student support in higher education and strengthen the institution’s ability to facilitate placement in high-impact internships and jobs through multiple offerings of the Krulak Institute for Leadership, Experiential Learning and Civic Engagement on campus. 

The event will take place at the Norton Campus Center Atrium located at 900 Arkadelphia Road Birmingham, AL 35254.
