UNIVERSITY MISSION STATEMENT
Troy University’s history of teaching excellence dates to its founding in February 1887 as Troy Normal School. From the outset, the institution quickly earned a reputation for innovation and accessibility. Troy Normal became Troy State Teacher’s College in 1929, Troy State College in 1957, and Troy State University in 1967.
The Montgomery Campus earned independent accreditation in 1983, as did the Dothan Campus in 1985. The Phenix City Campus and the locations around the nation and the world administered by the Troy Global Campus have always operated under the accreditation of the Troy Campus.
In 2005, the separately accredited campuses were merged into a single university structure forming Troy University. This name change represented the fifth major advancement in the storied, dynamic rise of the University to national and international prominence. Today, Troy University serves students in Alabama, throughout the United States and around the world.
