M Partner Funding Opportunities

Faculty funding available to align courses with M Partner projects in Summer 2019, Fall 2019, and Spring 2020.

M Partner is a community engagement effort that seeks to improve quality of life in Mississippi communities. M Partner offers a framework for community and university representatives to advance priority projects in partner cities across the state, and underpins institutional efforts to promote healthy and vibrant communities. The inaugural M Partner communities are Charleston (Tallahatchie County), Lexington (Holmes County), and New Albany (Union County). Priority projects in each community seek to improve quality of life through educational opportunities, health and wellness, and economic revitalization.
