130 Years of Excellence

On Feb. 24, 2017, Troy University will reach a historic milestone—130 years of excellence in teaching and service to students in Alabama, across the U.S. and around the world. Founded in 1887 with a mission of providing training to future teachers, TROY has grown into a global institution that provides higher education to nearly 20,000 students at four campuses in Alabama and numerous worldwide teaching sites. Yet, while TROY’s reach has grown, its mission remains the same as that expressed in the school’s founding charter:  “educate the mind to think, the heart to feel and the body to act.”

This webpage features a timeline of interesting photos and milestone achievements in the life of Troy University, from its founding to present day; a history of the University; and links that enable you to stay in touch with current TROY news and events, support the University through a financial gift and connect with alumni and friends of TROY through the Alumni Association.
