M Partner is a community engagement initiative that connects university resources with priority projects in partner communities. M Partner is housed at the McLean Institute for Public Service and Community Engagement at the University of Mississippi. The McLean Institute partners with Mississippi communities to fight poverty through education, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
Ecru and Pontotoc are designated as M Partner communities through July 2022. During this time, the McLean Institute will identify courses, internships, and co-curricular service projects that align with areas of interest in Ecru and Pontotoc. These areas include promoting economic development, elevating local history, expanding educational enrichment, and encouraging visitors to the Tanglefoot Trail.
