Faculty Funds Available through M Partner

M Partner is seeking faculty members to align their courses with community-driven projects in Fall 2018, Spring 2019, and Fall 2019.

M Partner is a new community engagement effort that seeks to improve quality of life in Mississippi communities. This initiative offers a framework through which community and university representatives can cultivate mutually beneficial partnerships that will lead to the co-creation of knowledge and ideas to enhance community wellbeing. M Partner is one of the pillars outlined in the university’s comprehensive strategic plan, Flagship Forward, and underpins institutional efforts to promote healthy and vibrant communities. 

M Partner has funds available to support faculty, staff, and students as they work to advance these community-driven projects. Please contact Laura Martin, M Partner Director, for additional information at
