Community Involvement

Our students and faculty participate in research projects that serve our neighbors. Through our campaigns classes, we propose solutions for both profit and nonprofit businesses and organizations. Among recent clients are Make-A-Wish, the U.S. Census, Ford, Commercial Appeal, and Lifeblood.

Currently three faculty members are implementing a Strengthening Communities grant in support of the “Smallest User” energy conservation initiative. The Journalism Department has partnered with MLGW to create a competition between the Cooper Young and Evergreen Neighborhood associations to see which can be the smallest user of energy.

The Journalism Department is the publisher of the Teen Appeal, a citywide high school newspaper circulated to all Memphis city high schools, a grant-funded, 14-year partnership with the Memphis City Schools, the Scripps Howard Foundation and the Memphis Commercial Appeal. This publication opens opportunities for students to study journalism, opportunities no longer available in most city high schools.
