Honoring the Past, Building the Future

When the University of Memphis acquired the Lambuth University property in 2011, it inherited a prominent liberal arts institution with roots reaching back to its founding in 1843. Rich in history and steeped in tradition, Lambuth produced generations of leaders in education, ministry, law and business.

While we honor MCFI-Lambuth’s past, the UofM is moving forward with a bright future for the picturesque campus. With all the power of a major public research university behind it, the UofM Lambuth brings visionary learning to West Tennessee. We firmly believe that excellence in higher education knows no limits and no boundaries.

We invite you to consider making a tax-deductible contribution to support the future of UofM Lambuth. Your gift will provide support for undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, faculty awards and facility improvement projects. You can feel secure that your gift will be used for the benefit of the Lambuth campus.

You may contribute to one of the funds already established or create a new named fund for a minimum amount. Please contact the Development Office at 731.425.7400 for more information.
