Governor Bob Riley (seated) signs a commendation commending the eConnections partnership between Troy University and the Alabama Community College System as TROY Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., left, and Bradley Byrne, former post-secondary education chancellor, look on. The signing took place in May at a press conference on Troy University’s Montgomery Campus. The program will enable community college graduates to continue their education through distance learning opportunities provided through TROY’s eCampus. The University has entered into formal partnerships with 15 community colleges in Alabama to date. Under these agreements, TROY is providing coordinators to counsel students and serve as academic advisors to help students begin on a path toward a bachelor’s degree.
