Our Campus Community

Dear Campus Community:

On the heels of one of the most divisive national elections in our history, our campus community continues to demonstrate the very best in American democracy, a commitment to free speech, civility and recognition that our diversity is our strength. Several student groups have offered a voice and demonstrated, and done so, in a thoughtful and effective manner.

We will continue our critical conversation series, with an upcoming session likely focusing on the contentious nature of the recent election. Regardless of individual political leanings, this is our campus and our community; we define its environment. Thank you for your commitment to our core values and for living those core values daily. It makes me proud to be a part of the University of Memphis.

If you have questions, concerns or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me or our leadership team.

Warm Regards,

M. David Rudd
President | Distinguished University Professor
