University of Memphis Magazine - Fall 2020 (magazine cover - image of student wearing face mask)

In this edition of the University of Memphis Magazine, we feature all that our University community has done to guide us through these extraordinary times.

Our partnership with the City of Memphis, YMCA, Shelby County Schools and Chartwells produced more than one million meals over a five-month period for local students who were physically out of school and in need. The Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality & Resort Management coordinated the distribution of care packages for workers and their families with help from several community partners. The Tiger Pantry also stepped up, remaining open for our students while adapting to the difficulties of providing food and daily essentials during a pandemic.

In the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders, students and faculty developed communication boards for ICU workers at local hospitals to better assist intubated patients. The Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music provided piano deliveries, allowing impacted students to continue their studies virtually. Dr. Brandt Pence, a professor in the College of Health Sciences, has undertaken important research to help gain a better understanding of COVID-19 and the therapies needed to combat the virus.

I want to express my enormous gratitude to our entire University of Memphis community for helping navigate the historic challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past several months. As they always do, our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends have pulled together to make the best of what has been one of the most difficult periods in American history.

We are Still Driven, and Still Doing.

Thank you for your continued support.
