M Partner is a community engagement initiative that connects university resources with priority projects in partner communities.

During this time, UM faculty, staff, and students are invited to connect their courses, internships, and co-curricular service projects with community priorities in Ecru and Pontotoc. These priority areas include promoting economic development, elevating local history, expanding educational enrichment, and encouraging visitors to the Tanglefoot Trail.
