Why Learn About Community Engagement?
Outreach and engagement at the University of Memphis are an integral component of its mission. The UofM has shared its knowledge resources for the public good from its inception, linking campus and community through applied research, technical assistance, and instructional programs.
We believe that community engagement benefits both community and campus partners. Communities can benefit from working with the University of Memphis by having access to its vast resources, including faculty's specialized expertise in research and evaluation. For faculty, it allows them to be more actively engaged in society and provides them with new information for publications and other communications that reflect the realities outside the laboratory.
For students, the new generation of scholars, we believe that community engagement enhances your academic knowledge because it allows you to explore more deeply the issues you learn about in your coursework. You can also develop personal, professional, leadership, and citizenship skills, and contribute economically and socially.
If you experience technical problems, please utilize the UofM's technical support site.
