The Culverhouse LIFT (Learning Initiative and Financial Training) Program is a joint initiative of The Culverhouse College of Business Dean’s Office and The Culverhouse School of Accountancy. It started in August 2014 as a dual faculty-student effort. This program is designed to reach out to the Tuscaloosa and West Alabama communities and use University resources, both financial and human capital, to improve the job skills of the adult and teen populations.
The program provides free classes for anyone in the community who would otherwise not have access to such courses and education because of lack of financial resources or other obstacles. A secondary goal is to provide support to the small business community and local entrepreneurs.
Important Updates for Fall Classes
All classes for the fall will be conducted virtually through the Zoom platform. Registration is currently open. Classes will begin in mid-September. There will be a wide range of class options available at various days and times. Youth tutoring will also be offered at a variety of times.
