The University of South Alabama (USA) is a public, doctoral-level university in Mobile, Alabama, USA. It was created by the Alabama Legislature in 1963, and replaced existing extension programs operated in Mobile by the University of Alabama. At the time that this university was founded, a new concept was implemented in Alabama for the first time; that a public institution of higher education would be created that did not use race as a factor for enrollment. The only place in the state that was really open to this type of policy was the Mobile area. The rich cultural diversity of the Mobile area made it the obvious choice. No other areas of the state were willing to support such a school at that time. Plans for this university were being made as early as 1956. The University is divided into nine colleges and schools, and includes Alabama's second state-supported medical school. The university has an enrollment of over 14,000 students. To date, the University has awarded over 62,325 degrees. The University has an annual payroll of $245 million (US), with over 5,800 employees. It has remained one of Alabama's fastest growing universities for the past several years.
