Coleman Center for Early Learning and Family Enrichment

Troy University breaks ground on Coleman Hall in Dothan

 Troy University officially broke ground on Coleman Hall, a new $3.2 million facility to be located on the University’s Dothan Campus.

The 13,400-square-foot building will be the home of the Coleman Center for Early Learning and Family Enrichment, a collaboration between the College of Health and Human Services and the College of Education.

The Coleman Center will feature classrooms, an interactive media room, exam rooms, counseling rooms, a workshop area and more, aimed at children ranging from infants to 4-year-olds.

“This is an exciting day for Troy University, but even more substantially, it’s an exciting day for the children who will be served and those who will benefit from the lessons learned here,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor of Troy University. “Not only will it serve the Dothan community, but it will have a profound effect on how we prepare early childhood professionals.”
