Active Community Engagement
In order to be a responsible urban serving university, the University of Memphis must
be actively engaged with our city, local neighborhoods, and the greater MidSouth region.
This scholarship of engagement comes in the form of strategic collaborations, the
sharing of resources, community leadership and volunteerism, as well as the provision
of cultural amenities that enhance the unique fabric of life that makes the City of
Memphis world renowned.

drive economic growth, improve quality of life, and increase investment in our community.
