As previously shared, the University of Memphis is actively pursuing the creation of an Emerging Research University Fund geared toward advancing our research mission and Carnegie I aspirations. In active coordination and partnership with the Tennessee Higher Education Commission and the other public research universities in Tennessee, the UofM is participating in an interim study with the goal of generating a detailed review to be presented to Governor Haslam in September.
I am optimistic about this project being funded in the upcoming legislative session. The completed report will be shared, and you will be updated as this effort continues to move forward.
