Company Overview

Auburn University is a comprehensive land-, sea-, and space-grant institution that has ranked as a top-50 public university for 18 consecutive years. Today, its more than 25,000 students describe Auburn as "home" and "just like family," much as the many generations of students before them have done. Located in the town of Auburn, Alabama, the university was chartered as the small East Alabama Male College in 1856 and opened its doors in 1859 as a private liberal arts institution.    


The college had begun an affiliation with the Methodist Church before the Civil War. Due to dire financial straits, the church transferred legal control of the institution to the state in 1872, making it the first land-grant college in the South to be established separate from the state university, and the name became the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama.
Women were admitted in 1892, making Auburn the oldest four-year, coeducational school in the state and the second-oldest in the Southeast. In 1899, the name was again changed to the Alabama Polytechnic Institute. In 1960, the school officially became Auburn University, which it had long been called and a name more in keeping with its location, size, and complexity. The institution has experienced its greatest growth since World War II. Today, students can choose from more than 140 degree programs, and students hail from all 50 states and 80 countries. The one building that comprised the campus in 1859, and housed a military hospital during the Civil War, was a foundation that eventually grew into today's thriving campus of 427 buildings on more than 1840 acres.

Auburn Montgomery was established as a separately administered branch campus in 1967. Auburn Montgomery sits on a 500-acre campus east of Montgomery, with enrollment more than 5,000. www.aum.edu    

Campus Environment & Planning

The past decade has been marked by unprecedented growth. Auburn has added a new student center; The Village residential housing complex; met the goals of its master plan to become a primarily pedestrian campus by converting a core thoroughfare into a pedestrian concourse and adding bike trails and walkways; and added extensive new academic facilities, including a top notch sciences and mathematics lab building, the McWhorter Center for Building Science, and the Shelby Center for Engineering Technology. This carefully planned growth has preserved the beautiful park-like setting and open, friendly atmosphere of the campus that been part of its charm for two and a half centuries - enhanced by its location adjacent to quaint, historical, village setting of downtown Auburn.

The university is three years into a strategic plan which has led to an Honors College enrollment that has more than doubled, living-learning community participation that has more than doubled, a record number of merit scholars (at 133, one of the top freshman merit scholar classes in the nation in 2010) in the freshman cohort, a record-breaking freshman class in terms of size and smarts for the past three years in a row, a new mentoring program for top scholars, improved graduation rates, the addition of a new writing program and Writing Center to support all undergraduates, nearly 100 new endowed professorships for outstanding faculty, one Rhodes Scholar and two Rhodes finalists in the past two years, and a study abroad program in every major department. Auburn earned a Carnegie distinction for its Outreach efforts in 2010, and paved the way for extensive new research by breaking ground on a third building for the Auburn Research Park, in partnership with the city of Auburn, which now houses a new center for MRI technology. This center already has a powerful 3-Tesla MRI scanner, and will in 2011 house one of the world's few 7-Tesla MRI scanners, with the capability of making discoveries to benefit humankind worldwide.    

Accolades & Accomplishments

The university and its faculty have earned countless honors and recognition, and sponsor extensive solutions-oriented research, and provides tens of thousands of hours a year in community outreach.
