Office of the President
"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 Researching
Technology has changed the way in which we communicate, work and play. It is also changing the way in which we think about how we care for ourselves. At the UofM's first National Institute of Health (NIH) Center of Excellence — the Mobile Sensor Data-To-Knowledge Center, faculty and students are working on a mobile platform to provide individuals with sensor data that enables them to monitor and participate in the management of their own health conditions.
I have included a link to a video that describes the cutting-edge technology and research that we are using to help individuals better understand their sources of stress and how it impacts their health and their daily lives. 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 Researching.
