CCFA takes great pride in its connections throughout the College across the University,
as well as connections in the Memphis community. Collaboration is a very important
component in today's academic world.
- WUMR-U92 FM is the U of M's campus radio station. WUMR is the only exclusively jazz outlet in
the Metro Memphis area. The station 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 of 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 Memphis' city-wide high school newspaper, launched more than 10 years ago through
a collaboration between the Department of Journalism, the Scripps Howard Foundation, The Commercial Appeal and Memphis City Schools. The Teen Appeal is a training ground for local students who would like to pursue a career in journalism.
- 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.
