University heads east for bigger West Tennessee presence
Lambuth CampusThe University of Memphis has a new home in West Tennessee. Beginning this semester, the U of M is offering classes at its new Lambuth Campus in Jackson, Tenn. The University acquired Lambuth University in August.

“Lambuth has given its students and alumni a great legacy, and the University of Memphis will continue and will build upon Lambuth’s fine educational reputation,” said University President Shirley Raines.

The U of M has been teaching classes in Jackson since 1955.

The city of Jackson, Madison County, West Tennessee Healthcare and the Jackson Energy Authority each contributed about $2 million to help acquire the campus. The goal is to begin with 250 students and grow to 1,000 students in five years.

Students are admitted to the U of M and are able to attend classes at Lambuth or any of the University’s other locations. The Lambuth Campus initially is offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in business, nursing and teacher education. As enrollment grows, the

U of M plans to expand into other degrees and certificate programs.

There are 5,409 U of M alumni living in the Madison County area, as well as many Lambuth alumni. “We will grow that number substantially in the years to come, and we look forward to having Lambuth alumni back as we celebrate many milestones,” Raines said.
