Shared vision realized as state, local and University officials dedicate University Park
Gov. Robert Bentley and officials from Troy University, the City of Troy and CGI in February formally dedicated University Park, an expansion project and catalyst for growth in the city.
Located between South Brundidge Street and Park Street near downtown Troy, the facility houses the University’s Information Technology Department and much of the technology infrastructure that drives the University’s international and domestic operations. The project allowed the University to relocate its eCampus headquarters. Also resident in University Park is CGI, a global information technology and business processes company that currently employs 140 in Troy and 31,000 worldwide.
TROY Chancellor Jack Hawkins, Jr., said the University Park project will ultimately house 600 high-tech jobs.
“We are delighted by the opportunities before us, and it will go way beyond the brick and mortar you see here,” Dr. Hawkins said. “Our shared vision has been realized, and I really believe that the best for this state and this University is yet to come.”
