The University of Memphis is emerging as one of the great metropolitan research universities
in the United States, noted for drawing on the strengths and challenges of the urban
setting and region in which it is located to address society’s issues and needs. The
vision for the University and its subsequent growth require careful development and
placement of resources. Strategic planning at the University of Memphis, therefore,
is an intentional and ongoing process. The purpose of this website is to provide transparency
on the content, processes, participants and progress of the University’s strategic plan.
