THE UNIVERSITY OF MEMPHIS


Letter from the President “Your unwavering support has empowered us to continue our historic commitment to undergraduate and graduate education while advancing our reputation as a major metropolitan research university.”

Shirley C. Raines

As we enter our next century of accomplishments and service, it is important that we reflect on this historic 100th year and celebrate our successes, while also pressing forward. The higher education and societal landscape are changing rapidly. Public funding for higher education has diminished drastically over the last decade. We must rely even more heavily on the support of those who care deeply about the mission and goals of our university. We are grateful for your financial support, your counsel and your commitment to the University of Memphis. Whether you give of your time, talent or treasure, we want you to know that we highly value your contribution. Your generosity means our graduates can contribute to society at every level. The shifting environment in higher education has mandated that we adapt our programs and services to meet new dynamics. We have developed even more online degrees and extended programs, expanded research, provided more community engagement, enhanced study-abroad options, generated meaningful internships and continued to move our students toward graduation in a timely manner. We have had many reasons to celebrate in this historic year. For the first time, we graduated more than 4,000 students. Our honors W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

program, already the largest in the state, experienced phenomenal growth, evidence that we have become a “first choice” for academically motivated students. We continue to be the safest university in the state over the last five years. Our Lambuth Campus in Jackson is exceeding enrollment expectations. And, as we go to press, we are very close to reaching our goal of raising $250 million for the Empowering the Dream campaign. When we developed our strategic plan three years ago, we set some aggressive benchmarks. We continue to monitor these metrics so we can assess our progress and move boldly into the future. Our strategic plan is focused on six goals. Student success is the reason we exist, while research and creativity are at the core of our mission to educate students through knowledge and expression. Access and diversity reflect our commitment to expand educational opportunities in an environment that embraces differences, cultivates shared decision-making and encompasses the rapidly changing technological landscape of higher education. Our extensive external partnerships, in which we serve as both an initiator of and a resource for important programs, mean that we are a vital component of the communities in which we

serve. And, the realization of all of our goals requires that we have a culture of service excellence within an inviting and safe setting, and that we develop a vibrant sense of place. Together, our six goals reinforce and complement one another. This dynamic strategic plan — developed from conversations with students, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, corporate partners and neighbors — is our road map to proactively move into the future. It guides our resources, directs our planning and allows us to seize new opportunities. On behalf of our students, faculty and staff, thank you for your confidence in us. Your unwavering support has empowered us to continue our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education while advancing our reputation as a major metropolitan research university.

Student Success

Hardin Honors Program excels

Putting students on the path to success is at the core of the University of Memphis’ purpose as it educates them through the advancement of knowledge and expression.

They conduct cutting-edge research, work on major fundraising efforts and spend countless hours performing community service. Not only are members of the Helen Hardin Honors Program known for being civic-minded and goal-driven, they are a part of something else: the largest honors program in the state — one that is thriving more and more each year. “Every major research university needs the best and brightest students, and that is who we are recruiting,” says University President Shirley Raines. “We know that universities with outstanding reputations have approximately 10 percent of their students in honors programs.” The University has exceeded that lofty goal. This fall, total enrollment in the program is 1,848, with 469 of those being incoming freshmen. The trend in honors program enrollment is upward: just three years ago the tally was 1,400. The criteria in the program are intense: incoming freshmen must graduate from high school with a minimum 3.5 grade point average and score at least a 27 on the ACT or 1,200 on the SAT. The program is renowned for extraordinary professors, small classes and opportunities for research in a variety of disciplines. Students have won Truman, Goldwater, Fulbright and Rotary scholarships in recent years, as well as major campus awards. “The program gives you individualized attention,” says Honors Program graduate and U of M alumnus Mikah Meyer, who won a $24,000 Rotary Scholarship while enrolled at the U of M in 2009. “It is a program that expects you to have higher academic standards. When you go to the professors in the program and say you want to do more or want to do better, they are there for you and will help you attain your goals on an individual level.” The program received a major boost four years ago when the late Helen Hardin gave a gift of $2 million to enhance the initiative.

It is easy for Brennan Somers to put a face on one of the most important parts of the University of Memphis’ strategic plan: student success. As the new weekend anchor for WMBF News in Myrtle Beach, S.C., the former journalism major is considered by industry insiders as one of the top up-and-coming TV newsmen in the South and one of the U of M’s more “visible” success stories. He is quick to credit the U of M. “By the time I completed my studies at the University of Memphis, my resume was filled with internships, jobs and skills learned from all different types of journalism experiences,” says Somers (BA ’11). “My professors pushed me and gave me the networking connections that helped build a solid foundation to jump start my journalism career.” The internships and academic support services Somers enjoyed at the U of M are just a part of the student success portion of the University’s strategic plan. Specifically, it seeks to offer academic programming that successfully increases student learning; enhances University-wide undergraduate and graduate recruitment efforts; and increases student persistence and timely graduation. It also looks to strengthen student connections to the University community and emphasize learning experiences that develop students and alumni into leaders in their professions and communities. The University is measuring the success of this key part of the strategic plan through several metrics, including recruitment and subsequent enrollment figures, retention rates, numbers of students in internships and enrollment in the Helen Hardin Honors Program. Interim provost Dr. Tom Nenon says the University’s graduation rates and the number of degrees earned are two key indicators of where the U of M is headed. “We graduated a record number 4,098 this past year (with a goal of 4,600 in two years),” says Nenon. “Our total enrollment was more than 22,000 for the third straight year, which is a first in the 100-year history of the University. W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

And our graduation rate of incoming freshmen has grown from 39 percent three years ago to 43 percent this past year with a goal of 50 percent in 2014-15.” These trends aren’t by accident. Nenon says the University has keyed on early intervention of students who are having academic problems, a sort of “early alert” system. “We revised our policies on academic standing,” Nenon says. “In the old days, we had very little notice that a student was in academic trouble — you might have had a bad grade point average but still be listed as being in good academic standing. You might have been able to slide along to the point where you just fell off the map and dropped out of school with no attempt at intervention.” Tutorial sessions and academic support programing and services for students in academic trouble are now required via the Center for Academic Retention and Enrichment Services. Faculty are required to initiate the process by submitting an online form through the Early Intervention System. Enhanced recruitment efforts, too, have led to not only higher graduation and enrollment rates, but also an increase in the academic standing of incoming freshmen and transfer students. According to Betty Huff, vice provost for Enrollment Services, the average high school GPA for incoming freshmen increased from 3.26 in fall 2010 to 3.33 this fall. An even more impressive rise has been incoming students with an ACT score of 25 or higher: the number increased to 29.8 percent this fall from 24.4 percent three years ago. Huff says the U of M recruits nationally now, with admission counselors assigned to all 50 states. The number of students participating in internships has also seen a sharp rise, from 4,328 three years ago to 4,700 this year with a plan to reach 6,600 in fall 2014. Meanwhile, recent graduates like Somers are proof the strategic plan is working, ensuring that the U of M provides distinctive learning experiences that foster lifelong success.

Research and Creativity The University of Memphis is committed to providing a researchbased atmosphere that spawns discovery, integration, application and teaching to advance knowledge and enhance our society. Research by chemistry professors Daniel Baker and Abby Parrill-Baker that is aiding in the fight against cancer; the announcement that computer science professor Santosh Kumar is one of 10 up-and-coming researchers in the nation; a newly established Office of Technology Transfer that has already been awarded nine patents: thanks to the U of M’s strategic plan, the school is on the fast track to its goal of becoming one of the top urban research universities in America while reaching the Carnegie Foundation’s most prestigious research classification. “The research mission of the University of Memphis is to create, preserve and disseminate knowledge for the betterment of global society and our urban community,” says Dr. Andrew Meyers, vice provost for Research and executive director of the U of M Research Foundation. Specifically, the “research and creativity” portion of the U of M’s strategic plan seeks to grow externally funded research; develop research partnerships that capitalize on the University’s urban and regional setting; encourage and support research and scholarship that critically engages the community; and position personnel and resources to develop research and creative strengths. Research goals include $100 million in annual research funding (at $52.5 million this past year) and 150 doctoral students (the U of M graduated 136 in 2011-12). Students remain at the core of the mission. “A research university such as the U of M offers our students the advantage of learning from those who create new knowledge,” Meyers says. Recent Goldwater Scholarship recipient Melanie Sparks, a U of M Honors student, is a perfect example of how U of M professors guide up-and-coming scientists. The chemistry major, who finished in the 99th percentile of the national standardized General Chemistry final exam, works closely with professor Dr. Yongmei Wang doing computational modeling on ribosomal proteins, which can eventually lead to the development of new drugs. She is also an integral part of the Bakers’ cancer research. W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

The University’s commitment to realizing the goals of the research and creativity section of its strategic plan was demonstrated when it established the Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) in 2008 in the FedEx Institute of Technology, considered the top research center in the Mid-South. “The OTT is a leader in our region and is deeply involved in the economic, social and professional growth of Memphis, the state of Tennessee and the nation,” says Kevin Boggs, assistant vice president of Technology Transfer. “We work closely with U of M faculty researchers to identify potentially patentable or copyrightable technologies. Our investment in U of M researchers, students and the entrepreneurial community enables us to facilitate the transfer of new technologies and innovative ideas to the public.” Boggs says that students benefit, too, which in turn addresses other goals in the strategic plan.

“The OTT helps science, engineering and technology graduate students by providing professional management of inventions they may make during the course of their thesis or dissertation research,” he says. “Technologies that students invent can therefore be brought to market and return a revenue stream that the student inventor would share.” The strategic plan also looks to increase the number of endowed professorships by 2014-15 and to push the number of Chairs of Excellence from 26 (highest in the state) to more than 30. Chairs of Excellence and Centers of Excellence were established at the U of M in the 1980s and are designed to attract top researchers and faculty. Meyers says the U of M has made huge strides in the past few years toward realizing its research and creativity goals. “In this generation, the University of Memphis has grown from $1 million to almost $55 million in external funding,” he says. “Even in these last five years of economic downturn and reduced federal funding for research, we have continued to invest in research support and infrastructure development that we believe will continue to grow our research program.”

Venturing to the next research level When one discusses the Crews Ventures Lab, the words innovation, entrepreneurship and technology weave their way into the conversation. The phrase “world-class facility” quickly follows. Just over a year ago, the University of Memphis received a $1 million gift from Hilliard and Harriett Crews to create a business start-up facilitator and incubator in the former Masonic Lodge at Walker and Patterson near the main U of M campus. This facility will have a major impact on entrepreneurship initiatives in the Mid-South. “The Crews Ventures Lab (CVL) at the U of M will provide a vibrant environment for promising researchers and local entrepreneurs to collaborate on projects with real-world applications,” says Hilliard Crews in making the gift. “Harriett and I are proud to be engaged in the exciting research innovations and commercialization opportunities happening at the University. We are confident the Ventures Lab will have a powerful and positive impact on Memphis and the entire region.”  The operation is being managed by the University’s FedEx Institute of Technology. Construction on the facility at the former Masonic Lodge is expected to be completed next summer. The space will provide a home for U of M students and faculty to build teams, develop ideas and prototypes, meet with mentors and advisers, and make pitches to local and regional earlystage investors. “The CVL will support local economic development by encouraging and supporting the entrepreneurial faculty and students at the U of M to ‘take the next step’ in realizing their dreams of starting companies,” says Dr. Andrew Meyers, vice provost for Research. “The CVL will also be a key driver and anchor for growth of the Highland/Walker redevelopment project.”

THE UNIVERSITY OF MEMPHIS


Access and Diversity The University of Memphis seeks to promote and sustain a safe, accessible and vibrant community that values diversity. During the Sept. 18 unveiling of a historical marker that signifies the importance of the African-American students who integrated the University in 1959, Memphis State Eight member Luther McClellan (BS ’62) said, “Learning occurs when you have a diverse and multicultural campus. If it is all one culture, then learning is limited.” When McClellan and seven other African Americans first stepped foot on campus in fall of 1959, it was a groundbreaking moment in the history of the University — the U of M’s student body had finally become integrated. Some 53 years later, the University has diversified even more with dozens of races, nationalities and identities represented. The “access and diversity” section of the U of M’s strategic plan seeks to ensure a continuation and expansion of a culturally diverse campus that is accessible to all. “The University of Memphis recognizes that institutional excellence is derived, at least in part, from diversity and the University is committed to continued enhancement of our

local, state, regional and national reputation as a leader in this area,” says Dr. Rosie Phillips Bingham, U of M vice president for Student Affairs. “Our goal is to achieve a just environment for our campus community where everyone feels welcome, respected and safe.” Part of the U of M’s strategic plan called for updating the Institutional Diversity Plan, which can be viewed at www.memphis.edu/ affirmact/access.php. Dr. Tom Nenon, interim U of M provost, says a key component of the diversity plan is to develop a University-wide curriculum that guides students to think critically about social and economic justice issues while providing faculty and staff with the tools to teach, educate and support inclusivity. “Memphis is a racially diverse city so it is extremely important for people to learn to interact with people from different backgrounds,” Nenon says. “When you have people from all over the world, it enhances the experiences and education of all.”

The strategic plan also calls for an increase in the number of scholarships and fellowships awarded to underrepresented populations as well as additional efforts at recruiting and retaining minority administrators and faculty. The plan, too, encourages tolerance and understanding by offering online diversity training modules for students and employees. The “access” portion of the strategic plan seeks to offer more academic programs at satellite campuses, such as the Lambuth Campus in Jackson, Tenn. U of M administrators have a goal of 1,000 students at Lambuth by 2014-15. This fall semester, enrollment numbers reached about 550, more than double the number from 2011’s first-year mark. The U of M is also offering more online courses, which, too, improve accessibility. In 2009-10, the total number of online course credit hours generated was 18,937, a number that has increased to 31,861 this fall. The University’s efforts at access and diversity seem to be working, as evidenced by the thoughts of the granddaughter of Memphis State Eight member Bertha Rogers Looney (BA ’79). “I am happy that I get to go here and that I am treated fairly by everyone,” says Meca Hill, an economics major.

Creating a civil campus Cyber bullying on college campuses is rare, but with the rise in the use of social media sites by students, it is occurring more often and has even drawn national attention. The University of Memphis has taken a proactive stance with a campaign that stresses civility and respect among students, faculty and staff. “Sometimes we do things that are offensive to other people and don’t realize it,” says Linda Hall, coordinator of Multicultural Affairs and a member of a committee that studies civility on the U of M campus. “We will become more aware of other people’s feelings through this campaign.” “I think that once people can hear what other people think is disrespectful, people will show more respect,” says Meta Laabs, director of Student Affairs Administration. “The goal is for everyone to get along and respect each others’ feelings and opinions.” W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

Residence Life and Dining Services Director Peter Groenendyk, who initiated the campaign, included cyber bullying in with a wide-range of other civility issues. “Besides multicultural issues, we broadened it to include social media, respect for community and good sportsmanship.” More than 20 University programs resulted from the initiative, all aimed at a more civil campus. About 3,000 students have taken part, and 23 U of M departments have been involved in the civility campaign. “The real benefit comes when students talk directly with their friends, classmates and faculty about civility,” Groenendyk says. Efforts to increase dialogue have come in many forms. The University hosts an annual “Why Do You Hate Me?” week designed to address issues of diversity, prejudice, privilege and civility. U of M basketball coaches

Josh Pastner and Melissa McFerrin have discussed the importance of civility among fans and players at sporting events. Diversity workshops have been included in academic courses, while other seminars have focused on civility in the U of M workforce and in personal relationships off campus. Other workshops have included focusing on civility and disability issues, suicide awareness components and essay writing contests designed to encourage students to think about how they treat others on and off campus. “The campaign has thrived, and I feel like we have made a tremendous amount of progress toward a more civil environment,” Groenendyk says. “The University will continue to hold such campaigns in the future to ensure civility on our campus. It is a win-win situation for all.” P R ESI DENT’S R EPORT 2012

THE UNIVERSITY OF MEMPHIS


Partnerships Whether through corporate, educational, governmental or research partnerships, as well as by establishing a strong connection to its alumni, the University is intent on building relationships to link its mission to external communities. The date of Sept. 26, 2012, came and went like most early fall days in the Mid-South, but at the University of Memphis, there was reason to celebrate: the University’s Alumni Association reached a milestone it was hoping to see by the end of the University’s centennial year — membership surpassed the 12,000 plateau for the first time ever. The mark was important in that alumni membership and alumni giving both have been identified as focus areas in the “partnership” section of the University’s strategic plan. “Every thriving University has a robust Alumni Association,” says Tammy Hedges, executive director of the U of M Alumni Association and director of Constituent Relations. “Alumni are the guardians of their University. A lifelong relationship with one’s alma mater through the Association makes the University stronger, and thereby degrees are worth more. It is in the best interest of all alumni to maintain their degrees’ worth through ‘investing’ in a relationship with their alma mater.” Focusing on relationships with alumni is just one part of the “partnerships” section of the strategic plan. It also seeks to expand productive sustainable community alliances; enhance the visibility of the U of M locally and nationally; and increase overall giving to the U of M to support its mission. “As a metropolitan research university, we strive to form mutually beneficial partnerships with business, government and community groups that foster learning for our students, provide support for our faculty and positively impact the quality of life in the Greater Memphis area,” says Julie Johnson, vice president for Advancement. The “giving” focus area has been one of the University’s most visible and successful areas of its strategic plan. The $250 million Empowering the Dream campaign was launched publicly just over a year ago. It is securing funding for priority University-wide faculty enhancements and academic initiatives such as the proposed new joint facility for the Loewenberg School of Nursing and the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders. The plan has helped foster innovative research projects, endowed scholarships and fellowships W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

and is funding a new indoor athletic facility. The campaign has already surpassed the $220 million mark and goes through June 30, 2013. Johnson says that at any given time, the U of M has 1,200 partnerships in the community. These range from safe community projects, leadership development and reading initiatives to improve neighborhoods, providing free legal counseling to those in need and helping to prevent such societal problems as smoking, obesity and teenage pregnancy. The College of Education, Health and Human Sciences, for example, has partnered with 12 rural school districts to establish the Southwest Tennessee Rural Education Cooperative. This effort will create a sufficiently large applicant

base to effectively compete for large federal and state grants, thus improving teaching and learning for 57,000 rural school students. The Institute for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership has joined with the Community Foundation of Memphis and United Way of the Mid-South to create the Strengthening Communities Program, designed to build capacity in neighborhoods and community organizations while furthering the engaged scholarship activities of University faculty. On a statewide level, the University’s focus on partnerships has produced “Tigers on the Hill,” a network of U of M graduates and friends who work on Capitol Hill in Nashville to generate support for the school. And in Jackson, Tenn., the U of M has created new educational opportunities for West Tennessee students with the opening of the Lambuth Campus. Through these and hundreds of other partnerships, the University’s connection to the community and nation will grow even stronger in its second 100 years.

Lending a helping hand Getting through college and earning a degree can be difficult, but imagine if you are a first-generation university student with little or no financial backing — the mountain just got higher. Thanks, though, to an $860,000 grant from the Suder Foundation, first-generation University of Memphis student’s path to the top isn’t as treacherous. The U of M has been selected to join a growing network of universities committed to increasing the graduation rate of first-generation college students through participation in the Suder First Scholars program. The Plano, Texas-based foundation focuses on providing individualized academic and social support, personal development and financial assistance to students whose parents have no education beyond high school. It is just one of many shining examples of partnerships with foundations and corporations that help drive the University. “In the fall of 2012, about 40 percent of first-time, full-time freshmen at the U of M were first-generation college students,” says Dr. Rosie Phillips Bingham, vice president for Student Affairs. “Students who are the first

in their families to attend college face extra challenges adjusting to college life, because they and their families lack information about the college experience. Our No. 1 goal at the University is student success. The First Scholars program will help us achieve that goal by giving students who may benefit from additional support the help they need to persist and graduate on time.” Nationally, only 36 percent of firstgeneration students complete bachelor’s degrees within six years of enrollment, compared with 60 percent of their peers whose parents are college graduates. Grant funds will be used to provide fouryear renewable scholarships of $5,000 each to incoming first-time, full-time freshmen whose parents did not attend college. Of the 47 universities that competed for the grant this year, only the U of M and Washington State University were named recipients. Texas businessman Eric Suder said the financial difficulty his family faced in sending both him and his brother to school was a major reason he began the foundation. P R ESI DENT’S R EPORT 2012

Campus Culture and Service Excellence The University of Memphis’ strategic plan calls for creating a campus culture that advances shared governance among students, faculty and staff; encourages transparency; and sustains and supports operational and service excellence. Providing excellent customer service may seem more in line with retail businesses, but more and more universities are stressing the importance of this interpersonal skill that can have a major impact on the perception and overall effectiveness of an institution. The U of M has put in place steps — including an Institutional Efficiency Report — in its strategic plan that focus on the success of the “campus culture and service excellence” goal. “There have been several initiatives undertaken by the University in the past two years to achieve greater institutional efficiency in multiple areas,” says Teresa Hartnett, director of Administrative Business Analysis in the Division of Business and Finance. Hartnett says these areas include customer service, organizational structure or restructure, information technology, energy efficiency, overall administrative process improvement, and — last but not least — academic success and progress toward degree completion.

“Our ongoing assessment of academic programs provides a valuable tool for decisionmaking about resource allocation and program implementation,” says Dr. Tom Nenon, interim provost. “We assess data to recommend and implement policies and initiatives that will ensure the overall quality of academic programs and student success.” A variety of advising technologies have been implemented to optimize class selection and placement and reduce time to degree completion. U of M students now have access to UMdegree (DegreeWorks), which helps them and their advisers monitor progress toward degree completion. The efficiency report also has helped the U of M tackle organizational structure or restructuring, such as at Lambuth Campus, where processes have been streamlined and best practices put in place to create an efficient environment. Hartnett says energy efficiency and information technology also are major focuses in creat-

ing operational and service excellence. Physical plant performed a campus-wide detailed energy use and savings study in 2010 as the basis for the $9.5 million Energy Savings Performance Contracting Project. The U of M continues to participate in the Energy Star purchasing program for certain types of equipment and appliances. One of the more visible areas of focus on process improvements is in the Information Technology Division. IT’s improvements have included the implementation of the TigerBuy E-Invoicing module and an expanded online presence of the Campus ID Card. The University also launched the Administrative Process Improvement Program in 2010 to streamline processes (read more below). The U of M is also working to provide the public and students with the best in customer service as part of the strategic plan. The University’s plan calls for recognizing and providing incentives for faculty and staff who provide high-quality service. By improving service excellence and overall efficiency, the U of M will continue toward its goal of becoming one of America’s top urban research universities.

U of M improves internal processes University of Memphis professor Katrina A. Meyer likes to inject a bit of humor into an otherwise tedious, but nonetheless extremely important initiative at the University: the Administrative Process Improvement Program. “I like to say that it keeps people from having an, ‘Oh, I could have had a V-8’ moment,’” the professor of higher and adult education says. “It gives faculty and staff a chance to see why an administrative process is done, such as the required steps in a research proposal, and see the reasons behind the process. It allows them an opportunity to make a suggestion that could improve upon a process and make it more efficient.” The U of M’s Administrative Process Improvement Program has already streamlined labor- and resource-intensive tasks while helping the U of M to become a more sustainable campus. “This initiative is a core strategy of the Campus Culture and Service Excellence goal of the University’s Strategic Plan, and our success will significantly advance strategic goals and objectives,” says Teresa Hartnett, co-director of the Program Management Group, which oversees the project. “In addition, the process itself is fostering W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

a culture of enhanced institutional flexibility and adaptability, so that the University can better respond to changes in customers’ needs, competitors’ actions, economic fluctuations or development opportunities.” The University gives faculty and staff an opportunity to fill out an online questionnaire and provide input on ideas to improve programs, procedures and processes. “Becoming more efficient in our administrative processes saves the University a lot of money and creates more efficiency and actions that cut across campus,” says Ann Harbor, a member of the U of M’s Project Management Group. “It can be an administrative process that is paper and time intensive, or one that an employee simply struggles to understand.” Research is an area that is seeing results. When submitting a research proposal, scientists have to be aware of federal regulations and procedures, a process often filled with hurdles. “Overall, we want to eliminate unnecessary steps and old processes and introduce more efficient procedures,” says Meyer. “We want to include educational material, too, about the processes involved in research proposals.” P R ESI DENT’S R EPORT 2012

THE UNIVERSITY OF MEMPHIS


Sense of Place The University of Memphis’ strategic plan includes offering a safe, inviting and sustainable campus setting. When the University of Memphis opened the new University Center (UC) in March of 2010, administrators had high hopes the facility would serve as a magnet for student life. The old, outdated UC had run its course — students had tossed the building aside much like a worn-out shoe. Two years after opening the doors of the new UC, U of M officials couldn’t be more thrilled with one of the newest additions to campus. On a daily basis, thousands of students visit the many social areas, conference rooms, offices, computer labs and dining areas of the sleek, three-story facility. The building is again the hub of student life. It didn’t happen by accident. The University has developed a master plan that is both visionary and practical, according to Tony Poteet, assistant vice president of Campus Planning and Design. “Some of the overall goals in our day-to-day operations are to develop a safe and secure campus with a great sense of community, easy access and pedestrian-oriented,” says Poteet. “The University’s long-range plan includes improving classroom environments, adding additional living areas and expanding research space for faculty.” Specifically, the U of M’s “sense of place” segment of the strategic plan is to provide a safe and secure campus environment; create facilities that enhance recruitment and retention; improve campus signage; collaborate with neighbors and businesses to advance sense of place; implement the University’s sustainability plan; and adopt innovative ways of realizing the campus master plan. “To be competitive with other universities, we have to stay on the very edge of the latest in teaching and research facilities,” says U of M President Shirley Raines. “We take the success and well-being of our students very seriously — we continually look for ways to improve the quality of their education and their on-campus experiences.” The University is currently engaged with design teams to pre-plan the U of M’s next three major facility additions. The Community Health Building, to be located on the Park Avenue Campus, will provide new W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

accommodations for an expanded Loewenberg School of Nursing program and the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders. The Biochemistry and Biology Facility for expanded research in those fields is being planned as is a new music facility that will be one of the finest on-campus music centers in the country and house the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music.  The University’s strategic plan also includes developing a sense of place that extends beyond its campus borders. The U of M has partnered with the University Neighborhoods Development

Corporation for a revitalized pedestrian-friendly Walker Avenue next to campus. “University-community partnerships have the potential to drive economic development, enhance quality of life and create the significant places that we believe will transform Tennessee,” Raines says. The University’s strategic plan also seeks to continue the U of M’s status as the safest campus in the state of Tennessee. U of M Police Director Bruce Harber says his department continually looks for new ways to improve safety. “We continue to add technology. For example, we have more than 500 Web-based cameras on campus,” says Harber.

A tinge of green in a sea of blue The University as an icon for world-wide sustainability initiatives among universities? Not too far from becoming reality, according to U of M sustainability coordinator Amelia Mayahi. Mayahi and visiting professor of architecture Jennifer Thompson were chosen to give just one of eight keynote presentations at the prestigious World Symposium on Sustainable Development at Universities, an event parallel to the United Nations conference for Sustainable Development held last summer in Brazil. About 60 universities from dozens of countries such as China, the Netherlands, Finland and India were present. “What better way to be a leader in sustainability than being an international icon for sustainable development at universities,” Mayahi said. Six years ago, University of Memphis President Shirley Raines signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, signaling the U of M’s pledge to a more sustainable campus. Since then, the U of M has hit the accelerator In sustainability initiatives. “To address environmental challenges, we are becoming a leader in sustainable technologies and practices, acting as a model for the community,” says Dr. Raines. The past five years have seen meaningful and large leaps for the U of M in

sustainability initiatives. • The University of Memphis and Apple Inc. have co-hosted the largest e-recycling event in the Mid-South three times in the past five years. • The student-initiated Green Activities Fee has been implemented, producing about $400,000 that is used for educational purposes. • Recycling efforts have increased 300 percent. The University just added the Recycling Zone Prototype near Mynders Hall, which is serving as a demonstration site for sustainable practices and is available to students, faculty and others to deposit a wide range of recyclable materials. • Architecture students developed and designed the TERRA House, a “futuristic” sustainable demonstration house in Memphis’ Uptown neighborhood that has become a model for the nation. • The University’s expansive TIGUrS garden, adjacent to the Elma Roane Fieldhouse, serves as an educational tool for University and Campus School students as well as the general public. • The U of M also boasts a new student residence complex that opened two years ago that was the first and most sustainable public building in Tennessee, meeting LEED Silver standards in sustainability and green design. The University has dozens of other “green” projects: visit www.memphis.edu/ bluegoesgreen for more information. P R ESI DENT’S R EPORT 2012

TIGER SCHOLARSHIP FUND Donors to the Tiger Scholarship Fund contributed $7 million in 2011-2012 toward studentathlete scholarships. As the primary fundraising arm for University of Memphis Athletics, Tiger Scholarship Fund finances the cost of athletic scholarships for more than 350 student-

athletes every semester. This is achieved through the generous contributions and stewardship of fans, friends, family and alumni.

EMPOWER Donors Help Ensure University’s Success

Today, the University of Memphis is at a dramatic crossroads as it looks toward its second century. It has a unique opportunity to build on 100 years of educational achievement, steady growth and service to the community. Simply put, the time has come to secure its future as one of the nation’s leading metropolitan research universities. To seize this opportunity, the University executed a major campaign as a capstone to its first 100 years. The $250 million Empowering the Dream Centennial Campaign will position the University for greatness and serve as a catalyst for the next 100 years. Momentum is strong. To date, thousands of generous donors have demonstrated their support of this historic effort with total commitments in excess of $220 million. “As we move into the final months of the campaign, we encourage our alumni and friends to demonstrate their support for the University of Memphis during this defining moment in our history,” said Dr. Shirley Raines, U of M president. Charles Burkett, a proud alumnus and former president of First Tennessee Bank, who is co-chairing the campaign with his wife, Judy, stressed that every gift counts, regardless of size. “We want everyone to feel they are part of this,” he says. “You want to be proud of your alma mater, the place that provided a strong foundation for your success. You want to see your university flourish and its reputation enhanced over time.” A central way to accomplish these objectives is to attract talented students and faculty, and to provide world-class facilities, all of which are priority initiatives of the campaign.

W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

The University of Memphis seeks to be a first choice among the nation’s brightest students, including National Merit Finalists and other high-achieving students. To be competitive with other leading universities across the nation, the U of M must increase both the size and scope of scholarship and fellowship packages. Similarly, Empowering the Dream supports accelerated progress toward attracting top faculty and researchers. The University is committed to investing in its faculty to ensure the integrity and quality of its academic programs. Many universities provide incentives to recruit and retain outstanding faculty through annually awarded professorships. These named professorships provide support and recognition to faculty who have earned distinction in research, teaching and outreach. State-of-the-art facilities create a 21st-century campus environment that helps the University remain relevant in community engagement, research and student learning. “We now have an opportunity to secure state matching funds to complete crucial academic facilities such as our Community Health Building and the new Music Center,” said President Raines. “For every one dollar in private support given toward these buildings, the State of Tennessee will provide three dollars of matching funds. We must take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity.” The Empowering the Dream Centennial Campaign is an emphatic statement of the importance of the University as it launches its second century. Through partnerships with alumni, friends and community leaders, the University of Memphis will empower the next generation of Dreamers. Thinkers. Doers.

DONOR IMPACT Endowed scholarships like the Richardson Scholarship change students’ lives U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is fond of saying, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Perhaps it takes a city to raise a successful student. E. Taylor Richardson (BS ’62), a retired regional sales manager for Becton Dickinson Inc., was lucky enough to get help from individuals and organizations in his hometown to attend the University of Memphis. Years later, he is making it possible for others to get an education at the U of M through the E. Taylor and Mary Richardson Scholarship, which he and his wife, Mary (MA ’97), established in 1976. “I set up a scholarship because I started thinking how much my college experiences in Memphis had enhanced both my personal life and my career, and I wanted to give back in some way,” Richardson says. “In particular, I was grateful for support I had received from citizens in the community where I grew up – Tiptonville, Tenn., in Lake County – who made it possible for me to attend college in the first place, so it was natural for me to want to designate the scholarship for that geographical area.” The scholarship is awarded to graduates of Lake County High School who qualify academically and financially. Some 63 students, both undergraduate and graduate, have benefited from the Richardson Scholarship. Richardson faced many challenges in financing his education at the University, but also received a lot of help. “Fortunately, the Kiwanis Club of Tiptonville awarded me a scholarship for my freshman and sophomore years, which gave me the financial support I 44

r Mia Fowle

needed to come to Memphis to start school,” he says. “I also had the moral support of my high school coach and several teachers who encouraged me to start college, even though I didn’t know how I was going to be able to finance a four-year education.” The Kiwanis scholarship covered registration fees for the first two years, and he was able to work part-time jobs to pay for his room and board and fraternity expenses. “Then I actually had to drop out of school for more than a year to work full time – for the Corps of Engineers on the Mississippi River – to earn enough money to return for my junior year,” Richardson recalls. “During that time of

working on the river, I realized even more what an education would mean to me later in my life. Also, the community support I had received up to that point motivated me to want to continue working toward a degree.” A man in Tiptonville co-signed a loan to help Richardson finish his senior year. “I was able to repay that loan a few years after graduation when I had begun my full-time career.” Richardson loved his years at then-Memphis State. “I made friends mainly through SAE fraternity that continue even to this day. I loved the sports programs, especially football, and the instructors were great people and excellent educators.”


Taylor and Mary have been extremely impressed with all of the recipients they have been able to meet so far. “She likes to refer to them fondly as the ‘Richardson Scholars’,” Taylor says. “One has gone on to practice law; others have become teachers; many have gone on to successful careers in business and are enjoying a better life for themselves and their families.” One of the 2012 recipients is freshman Mia Fowler. Mia graduated last year from Lake County High School, earning the title of salutatorian in a class of 65 seniors. It was an honor borne out of tragedy. Mia is the daughter of Donna Fowler and the late Mike Fowler. Mike died five years ago in a drowning accident while trying to save his son. “He was saving my brother; the tide was taking him under,” Mia recalls. For a time after that, Mia didn’t do well in her studies. “Then I decided that he would want me to do well in school. My dad was my best friend. He would want me to do better and be better.” Inspired by her father’s memory, Mia – who has two stepsisters, two stepbrothers and a halfsister in addition to her brother – turned things around. “It’s a really, really small town. My dad was a very important person in our community,” she says. “This scholarship has benefited my education by allowing me to focus on my studies rather than working a job to pay off loans that would have been necessary for me to take out if I were not awarded the Richardson Scholarship.” Without the scholarship, her family could not afford to finance Mia’s education. “So this scholarship is allowing me to not only graduate from the University of Memphis, but also is helping make sure I receive my degree in four years.” Students at Lake County High are very familiar with the Richardsons’ generosity and the scholarship, Mia says. One semester in, she loves being at Memphis as much as Taylor Richardson did. “I always knew I wanted to go to the U of M, ever since I started high school,” she says. “I can’t express how much the school has meant to me.” W W W. M E M P H I S . E D U

Richardson returns to the U of M fairly often. He has served his alma mater as president of the University of Memphis Foundation and as a member of the Board of Visitors. Richardson also is a past president of the Highland Hundred. “The Highland Hundred has always been good for the Tiger football program,” he says. “It supports the team and the coaches and has a good time while getting more people in the community involved in the life of the University. I have always been supportive of all of the Tiger teams, even when we are losing. It is all about competing and learning what is important in your life.” Richardson knows a number of his scholarship recipients who would not have gone to college without the financial assistance.

“I would love to see more alumni support scholarships and spend more time in support of the University. As a bonus for the alumni, it is very rewarding and fulfilling to actually see some of the fruits of your labor in the person of the scholarship recipients. That is just something I never expected could be so meaningful. “The impact on the community and the benefits we all get are tremendous. If you stop and think for a few minutes about where Memphis and the surrounding area would be without the University, it is sobering.  I can’t even imagine where we would be as a community without all the graduates who are contributing in various capacities.”

Memphis is known for a lot of things. You may already know about our musical heritage, our civil rights history, our barbecue and our entrepreneurial spirit.

Our city embodies our University’s motto – Dreamers. Thinkers. Doers. – but it is more than our motto. It is who we are as a university, and as a city.

Many successful businesses were birthed in Memphis – FedEx®, Holiday Inn® and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, to name a few. The first self-service grocery store, the first motel chain, the first outlet mall and the first overnight package delivery company were all started here.

Our almost 23,000 students embody the University’s motto as well. They are part of the largest honors program in the state. They study abroad in 40 different countries. They conduct research at facilities like our FedEx Institute of Technology. They study in rigorous, nationally ranked academic programs.

They are the next generation of Dreamers. Thinkers. Doers. memphis.edu
