Our students gain valuable experience and connections within the College and University
as well as the Memphis community through academic affiliates and community collaborations.
- WUMR-U92 FM is the U of M's campus radio station. The only exclusively jazz outlet in the Metro
Memphis area, WUMR offers a mix of contemporary and traditional jazz, as well as a
sampling of fusion, Blues, Latin and new age Jazz. The station also serves the Mid-South
with unique educational, sports and community service programming.
- The Daily Helmsman is the U of M's independent student newspaper. An extension of the Department of Journalism, the Helmsman employs a paid staff of about 30 students and three full-time professionals. Editorial
decisions are made by student editors, and except for a contribution from the Student
Activity Fee, the Helmsman is financially independent. The fee provides free issues to students, faculty and
staff at 70 locations each day.
- The Teen Appeal is a city-wide high school newspaper produced monthly by Shelby County Schools students. Funded by a generous grant from the Scripps Howard Foundation, the program brings students to campus to learn reporting, writing, multimedia production,
and other journalism skills. The Commercial Appeal prints and distributes the monthly newspaper.
- The Marcus W. Orr Center for the Humanities, located in the College of Arts and Sciences, has supported and collaborated with
CCFA in many ways, most notably by sponsoring lectures, discussions and lunch box
performances in the Department of Theatre & Dance. Founded to encourage interdisciplinary humanities research and teaching, the Center's
interest lies in building community through shared intellectual exchange.
