Both the United States Senate and House of Representatives passed resolutions recently that celebrated the University of South Alabama's 60th Anniversary.

Alabama’s Congressional delegation recently supported resolutions in the United States Senate and House of Representatives highlighting the University of South Alabama’s 60th anniversary and its service to the State of Alabama, region and nation.

Under the leadership of Senators Katie Britt (R-Ala.) and Tommy Tuberville (R-Ala.), the Senate approved a resolution by unanimous consent last week. The House of Representatives, led by Representatives Jerry Carl (R-Mobile) and Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) with support from the Alabama delegation, introduced a similar measure to commemorate the occasion and achievement. 

The resolutions highlight the University’s founding in 1963, its growth since then and its many contributions in education, research and healthcare as the Flagship of the Gulf Coast. The resolutions recognize USA Health as the region's sole academic health system with operations that include three hospitals, a cancer research center and a network of primary and specialty care clinics. 

The University recently finished a yearlong celebration of its 60th anniversary.
