About Auburn University at Montgomery, Alabama, USA

Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) is a coeducational public university located in Montgomery, Alabama, United States. It is governed by the Auburn University Board of Trustees, and is a branch campus of Auburn University. It was established by an act of the Alabama Legislature in 1967. AUM offers programs of study leading to bachelors, master's, and specialist degrees in business, education, liberal arts, nursing, and sciences. The university enrolls more than 5,500 students, with an additional 10,000 enrolled in continuing education programs. In January 2007, the university moved toward branding itself as Auburn Montgomery.

AUM was established in 1967 by Act 403 of the Alabama Legislature. In March 1968, Dr. H. Hanly Funderburk, Jr., was appointed vice president and chief administrator of the newly created university.

Two years later, the university relocated to a 500-acre (2.0 km2) campus on the McLemore Plantation tract, 7 miles (11 km) east of downtown Montgomery. The campus' first two buildings were the Administration/Library building and Goodwyn Hall with classrooms and faculty offices.

AUM has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools as an operationally separate institution since 1978.

The Courtyards residence opened in the fall of 1979 and is made up of seven two-story buildings.

Athletics

Auburn–Montgomery (AUM) teams, nicknamed athletically as the Warhawks, are part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), primarily competing in the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC). Men's sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer and tennis; while women's sports include basketball, cross country, soccer, softball and tennis.

AUM has participated in the NAIA since the inception of the athletic department 30 years ago. However, AUM has routinely explored possible future participation in NCAA Division II. AUM was accepted into the membership process to NCAA Division II on July 12, 2013, but the decision was then reversed on July 26, 2013. AUM was expected to join the Peach Belt Conference in 2014-15, but this will apparently be set aside with the NCAA's refusal to admit the school. However, the school re-applied and was approved to begin the three-year Division II membership process on July 17, 2015 and will begin the transition beginning with the 2015-16 season, while joining the PBC for all sports effective in the 2016-17 season.
