Organizational Sketch: Troy State University-Dothan created its Office of University Relations in the late 1970s as an outreach program to promote and advertise TSUD to Dothan and the surrounding areas. The office develops campus and community activities, conducts press releases for the local news agencies, and handles special events. It also organizes legislative and governmental affairs and informs the alumni of future events. After TSUD returned to branch campus status in 2005, it retained its Office of University Relations as part of its Division of Student Services to serve its primary functions to the neighboring communities.
