Our students and faculty participate in research projects that serve our neighbors.
Through our campaigns classes, we propose solutions for both profit and nonprofit
businesses and organizations. Among recent clients are Make-A-Wish, the U.S. Census,
Ford, Commercial Appeal, and Lifeblood.
The Journalism Department is the publisher of the Teen Appeal, a citywide high school
newspaper circulated to all Memphis public high schools, a grant-funded, 16-year partnership
with the Memphis City Schools, the Scripps Howard Foundation and the Memphis Commercial
Appeal. This publication opens opportunities for students to study journalism, opportunities
no longer available in most city high schools.
