M Partner

Home is not only a place, it’s also a powerful idea. Students who volunteer with M Partner want to improve both for their fellow Mississippians.

Launched in March 2018, M Partner is an ambitious new approach to the university’s longstanding commitment to improving quality of life in Mississippi. The new hands-on program aims to address the needs of three pilot communities: Lexington, Charleston, and New Albany. Whether those needs relate to health care and education, economic development and policy, marketing and tourism, resiliency, or core government systems, the goal is to develop a mutually beneficial relationship. The initiative aims to create substantial and sustainable results that will be viable in the community for decades to come and enhance the educational experiences of students and research and engagement programs of the university.
