"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe." - Anatole France
I am pleased to welcome you to the University of Memphis – where we strive for excellence in everything that we do, from the curriculum, to broad range of applied learning experiences we offer, to our cutting-edge research, to our service and many connections to the community.
All of the colleges and schools at the University of Memphis are dedicated to serving our communities in Memphis, throughout Tennessee, and across the globe. The College of Communication and Fine Arts (CCFA) continues to serve as a model of creativity, exploration, outreach and service to be emulated.
In the most recent CCFA Voices magazine, you can read about our journalism and strategic media students who traveled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to write about the Olympics. We have also provided a glimpse of the travels our music students as they journeyed through Europe playing concerts in Austria and Italy and taking classes from internationally renowned master musicians.
The University of Memphis is embedded in our community and we are always looking to grow our partnerships. It was an exciting day when we were able to announce a very unique partnership between the University of Memphis Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music and the Memphis Symphony Orchestra. Read about how the future of music training, performance and outreach is changing because of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra in Residence program at the University of Memphis.
