The University of Montevallo is a small, public liberal arts university located in Montevallo, AL, approximately 30 miles south of Birmingham, AL – Alabama’s largest metropolitan area. Montevallo was the second city in the state to enact a non-discrimination ordinance promoting equality and inclusivity among all individuals, regardless of race, religious status, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, marital status, and veteran status. Our campus community reflects this inclusivity with a diverse student body. In addition, UM’s liberal arts atmosphere fosters collaborative teaching and other academic endeavors. Smaller class sizes, relative to larger universities, allows faculty to be more engaged with students in the classroom and in advising their academic careers.
