TROY Mission and Vision

Institutional Mission 

Troy University is a public institution comprised of a network of campuses throughout Alabama and worldwide. International in scope, Troy University provides a variety of educational programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, to include doctoral programs,  for a diverse student body in traditional, nontraditional and emerging electronic formats. Academic programs are supported by a variety of student services which promote the welfare of the individual student. Troy University's dedicated faculty and staff promote discovery and exploration of knowledge and its application to life-long success through effective teaching, service, creative partnerships, scholarship and research.


Institutional Vision

Troy University, over the next five years, will attract, guide, and retain students on campus and on-line through a responsive, affordable, diverse, and challenging educational experience. Internships and study abroad opportunities will add value and values to the overall collegiate experience yielding globally aware, confident alumni ready to lead change.



The University will increase student access to higher education by providing programs that offer on-campus and on-line capabilities as well as programs that are offered in blended format, with a goal of increasing enrollment on the traditional Troy campus to 8,000 students by 2022 with the new student growth of 2% in its fall-to-fall comparison of new enrollments. Our intent is to regain momentum in our 14 county service areas plus growth areas of greater Birmingham, Mobile, Baldwin County plus Florida Panhandle.


Academic and administrative units will enhance their efforts to serve students in ways that improve retention and persistence to graduation with a goal of increasing overall retention by one percent annually as measured by fall-to-fall enrollments.


TROY will aggressively ensure that its academic programs enable students to earn degrees that are relevant to the market and social needs of the State of Alabama and the communities where students reside. Our goal will be maintaining the total number of graduates at the spring 2020 level over the next five years and achieve a 50% six-year graduation rate over the next five years. Actions that will support the graduation of students.


In the face of a worldwide pandemic, Troy University will hold fast to its identity as Alabama’s International University and its sustained commitment to diversity through these actions.
