The University of Memphis is a dynamic partner to the many neighborhoods and organizations in and around Memphis, Tennessee.

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. 

Place-making and Partnering 

Partnerships and collaborations which create a sense of authentic place can help to drive economic growth, improve quality of life, and increase investment in our community.

The University of Memphis focuses on creating and strengthening the optimal urban community environment by creating and maintaining community/university relationships, aligning partner interests, creating effective revitalization tools, and focusing on realistic and implementable efforts.
