President’s Welcome

    INAUGURAL EDITION                  We dreamed improbable dreams. In our dreams, we saw new buildings
                                       constructed and old ones renovated. We saw enrollment numbers soar as academic
                                       offerings expanded.  We saw Talladega College reclaim its position among
                                       our nation’s premier academic institutions. Because we were committed to our
                                       dreams, we labored steadily and we brought them to fruition.

                                       In January, 2019, we held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening
                                       of our new, state-of-the-art residence hall.  The pride and exuberance that
                                      Talladegans around the world felt that day has been felt again and again as the
                                      vision has continued to unfold.

                                      A ribbon cutting for the Dr. William R. Harvey Museum of Art, which houses
                                      our beloved Amistad Murals, was held January 31, 2020.  A ribbon cutting for
                                      our first-ever student center was held on the same day. In addition, we have been
                                      quietly making major updates in Savery Library, Silsby Hall and other campus

                                      But what we are experiencing at Talladega is much more than a physical
                                     transformation. The College had record-breaking enrollment numbers for the
                                     2018-2019 and the 2019-2020 academic years.  Talladega is listed among the
                                     Princeton Review’s best colleges in the Southeast and named one of U.S. News
        Talladega College/OIA        and World Report’s most innovative colleges. In addition, we recently launched
        627 W. Battle Street         our first-ever graduate program, a Master of Science in Computer Information
        Talladega, AL. 35160         Systems.
            In June, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on
                                     Colleges (SACSCOC) reaffirmed Talladega’s accreditation for the next ten
                                     years. We are proud that Talladega was reaffirmed with no recommendations
                                    for change in any of the standards. We are also thrilled that, for the first time
        President                   ever, Talladega is accredited to teach at the master’s degree level.

                                    There is so much more in store for this great institution that I cannot begin to
        Vice President for
        Institutional Advancement   cover it all in one brief message.  However, I assure you that, with your continued
        Mr. Seddrick T. Hill        support and commitment, all of our improbable dreams will soon come true.

        Ms. Mary King Sood
