FedEx Institute of Technology Community Partners
On April 25th we kicked off the community partners program, an opportunity for technology-oriented organizations which share the FedEx Institute's goal of making Memphis the leader in emerging technologies research to come together in a spirit of collaboration and connection. Memphis has more potential for excellence in technology innovation than any other city, and we are committed to working with all of the organizations in Memphis to realize this potential.
Welcome our Newest Partner
The FedEx Institute of Technology introduced the Community Partners Program in April of 2016. This program, designed to create strategic alliances with the community organizations impacting technology trends in Memphis, was initiated with a signing ceremony between the University and two key partners, Memphis Technology Foundation and Tech901. Since that signing, the close partnership between the University of Memphis and the local organizations committed to advancing technology skills and resources in Memphis has grown significantly.
