Troy University welcomes visiting scholars from around the world. As America’s International University, we are committed to expanding the frontiers of knowledge among the global community of scholars. Our goal is to create life-long relationships with scholars that continue beyond a scholar’s visit to the United States. We hope that successful scholars will consider Troy University as their second academic home.
While here at Troy University, visiting scholars will collaborate with a colleague in their own field. Twice per year, we hold a Symposium on International Research in Progress. This offers an opportunity for visiting scholars and their mentors to report on their work to the University community. Our visiting scholars participate in a wide variety of other academic endeavors including guest lectures in classes, assisting in laboratory work, and appropriate clinical site visits.
Our visiting scholars have many opportunities to experience the rich cultural heritage of America. In addition to many opportunities to visit the major cities and cultural sites around the country, they also become part of the local community. Scholars tour local historical sites, participate in the city festivals, and become part of civic organizations.
Visiting scholars to Troy University will have a life-changing experience; one that both advances their career and makes them part of the Troy University family of global scholars.
