The Centennial Campaign for the University of Memphis
While the University of Memphis has accomplished much over the last century, we know
the future holds even greater promise. With a goal of $250 million, the Empowering the Dream Centennial Campaign will build endowment to attract and retain world-class faculty
and talented students, add new facilities, and establish crucial program support for
strategic areas of study.
The dollars raised toward this historic initiative are significant, but it is the
lasting impact these gifts have at our University and in the region that is most noteworthy.
The Empowering the Dream Campaign offers tremendous opportunity to secure a robust future for the University
of Memphis as it strengthens the Mid-South through economic, workforce, and community
