Office of the Chancellor

Message from Chancellor Veres

Dear Friends,

As the first graduate of Auburn University at Montgomery to serve as chancellor, I’ve had the unique opportunity to observe and experience AUM as an undergraduate, graduate student and, ultimately, as its chief executive officer. My educational experiences at AUM were critical to my career, and I have seen many others whose lives have been similarly affected. Such life-changing experiences can only result when a faculty and staff share a commitment to excellence.

At Auburn Montgomery, dedicated faculty - many of them leading scholars in their fields - give students personal attention in small classes. Our programs in the schools of Business, Education, Liberal Arts, Nursing and Sciences are all fully accredited. Graduates of our professional programs, namely medical technology and nursing, boast 90-plus percent passing rates on licensure examinations.

Far from resting on these laurels, we are continually looking for more and better ways to serve our students. We are exploring ways to better accommodate their schedules through night and weekend offerings and online courses. We are continually working to create or enhance programs that will position them for success after college. Finally, we’re working to make the “hassles” of attending college - application, registration and billing - more seamless.

As a dynamic public university located in Alabama’s capital city, AUM is uniquely positioned at the center of a vibrant and growing community full of opportunity. We offer all of the advantages of a large university, but in a small college environment.

If you are a student looking for a college home, I encourage you to become a part of the Auburn Montgomery family and enjoy the benefits of our connections with business and state government through internships or research opportunities. Please take this opportunity to learn more about AUM by exploring this website and, better yet, scheduling a personal visit to our campus. Just one visit will make it clear that, at AUM, our standard is excellence.

Thank you for your kind attention.

John G. Veres III
