"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. Since our founding in 1912, we have enjoyed an enduring relationship with Memphis. We currently engage in a myriad of efforts in the community, but are inspired to expand our reach. To that end, the University of Memphis has committed itself to a Year of Service where students, faculty, staff and alums hope to donate at least 500,000 hours of service to their communities in Memphis, Jackson and beyond. Come back to our website often to read our stories and see how we are doing.

Go Tigers!
M. David Rudd, President
