We Are Movin' on Up!

Wider TowerThe Hooks Institute is thrilled to relocate to a new space on the 11th floor of Wilder Tower at the University of Memphis.

The new offices will honor the legacy of our namesake, Dr. Benjamin L. Hooks, by allowing us to expand our community engagement programs, increase media and documentary filmmaking capacity, and increase the visibility of the institute across the campus and community! 

Naming opportunities are available for those who wish to make larger gifts.
