About The University of West Alabama

The University of West Alabama (UWA) has served not only as a center for teacher training and higher education for 175 years, but also as a gathering spot for community and cultural events, including symphonic performances, dramatic productions, and outdoor activities. Tracing its beginning to the charter of Livingston Female Academy in 1835, UWA is one of the oldest institutions of higher learning in the state. The university is located in Livingston in Sumter County, just 20 miles from the Mississippi state line and 57 miles from Tuscaloosa, in Alabama's Black Belt region. Approaching the twenty-first century, the school renewed its commitment as a regional institution focused not only on providing a quality education but also on improving the quality of life for the citizens of West Alabama. To reflect this commitment, the name was changed to the University of West Alabama in 1995. The student population consists of approximately 4,600 students, of which, about 1,600 take courses online. The student body has a racial diversity of 60 percent Caucasian and 39 percent African American. Approximately 55 percent of the student body is female and 45 percent male. Students still study in small classes averaging fewer than 60 in traditional lecture classes and 25 or less in writing classes. As the university approaches its 175th anniversary in 2010, the campus continues to remember its past, while meeting the challenges of today, and setting its sights for the future.
