The IEAA brings world-renowned Egyptologists to the Mid-South for lectures and symposia. In addition, educational events are offered to schoolchildren and their families. Occasionally, the Institute also sponsors educational tours to Egypt.

The Institute of Egyptian Art & Archaeology provides trained graduate student docents for groups wishing a guided tour of the ancient Egyptian and African ethnographic exhibitions in the Art Museum of the University of Memphis. In addition, the Art Museum and the IEAA are sometimes able to provide guided tours of the Contemporary exhibitions at the Art Museum.
