University of South Alabama
Founded in 1963, South’s vision is to foster an environment that couples engaging learning experiences with high-level research, enabling their faculty and students to be leaders in their disciplines. The unique and beautiful Gulf Coast region is a catalyst for discovery and innovation, and South’s 1,200-acre campus has been transformed over the past decade with new facilities and resources for housing and recreation, health sciences, the arts, engineering, computer science and athletics. They’re the University of South Alabama. South, for short. Home to more than 16,000 students and more than 100 academic programs, their University is a dynamic community of leaders and learners who support and challenge one another to be actively engaged citizens who advance the Gulf Coast region and the world. The coastal region is healthier because of the USA Health system. Through its five components — USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital, USA Medical Center, USA Mitchell Cancer Institute, USA Physicians Group and the College of Medicine — USA Health provides care to hundreds of thousands of people and is a training ground for future physicians and health care professionals. USA is a place where students discover and strengthen their career passions, and form connections that result in lifelong relationships. At South, they look at the world and see things that they have the power to change, affect and shape — together. So that’s exactly what they do, every single day.
