"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.
Doing Is Maintaining
Sustainability. It is a buzz word commonly heard around the world - but one that also resonates deeply on campus. University of Memphis faculty and students are conducting interdisciplinary research that will assure an endless supply of high-quality drinking water for our communities now and in the future. Memphis is one of the largest cities that draws its drinking water from an aquifer, making it a natural location for the research.
The video below demonstrates our passion for ensuring that our communities have access to the resources they need for survival, such as clean drinking water. The UofM is dedicated to making the world a better place with timely, cutting-edge research that makes a global difference. At the UofM, we believe that Doing is Maintaining.
