The University of Memphis provides multiple layers of support for local projects and
community programs across the Mid-South.
As a metropolitan research university, we encourage community efforts to solve shared
problems through shared knowledge, collective impact and community engaged scholarship.
As an engaged learning community, the University of Memphis celebrates collaboration
to leverage resources for problem solving and the shared transfer of knowledge with
community stakeholders for the overall advancement of our community.
Many programs to support local and regional community efforts are available for organizations
seeking volunteers, interns, technical knowledge, and financial support.
One example of how the University support community led initiatives is the Strengthening
Communities Initiative. View this video to learn more about what is possible through
university partnerships and support.
