Welcome Home Dr. Bailey!: UA's 37th President


The W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library is honored to join the chorus in welcoming Dr. Guy Bailey back to The University of Alabama!

This video message to Dr. Guy Bailey is a fitting tribute to our our new University of Alabama president. The Board of Trustees of The University of Alabama System named Dr. Guy Bailey president of The University of Alabama on July 11, 2012. He began his tenure on September 3rd. A Montgomery, Alabama native and a two-time UA graduate, Dr. Bailey comes to us from Texas Tech University, where he served as president since 2008.

To learn a bit more about the history of presidents of The University of Alabama, visit our online exhibit, Presidential Portraits at the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library.   This small online exhibit features the portraits that are held in the Hoole Library of former University of Alabama Presidents.
