M Partner is a community engagement initiative that connects university resources with priority projects in partner communities. M Partner is housed at the Grisham-McLean Institute for Public Service and Community Engagement at the University of Mississippi. The Grisham-McLean Institute partners with Mississippi communities to fight poverty through education, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
For the past couple of years, Ecru and Pontotoc have been designated as M Partner communities. During this time, the Grisham-McLean Institute identified courses, internships, and co-curricular service projects that align with areas of interest in Ecru and Pontotoc. These areas included promoting economic development, elevating local history, expanding educational enrichment, and encouraging visitors to the Tanglefoot Trail. As the Grisham-McLean Institute looks to the future, we look forward to working with other partner communities.
