Ned R. McWherter

In 1909, the Tennessee
Tennessee
Legislature enacted the General Education Bill. This bill stated that three colleges be established, one within each grand division of the state and one additional school for African-American students. After much bidding and campaigning, the state had to choose between two sites to build the new college for West Tennessee: Jackson and Memphis. Memphis was chosen, one of the main reasons being the proximity of the rail line to the site proposed to build the new college for West Tennessee. This would allow professors and students to go home and visit their relatives. The other three schools established through the General Education Act evolved into East Tennessee
Tennessee
State University
University
(ETSU), Middle Tennessee State University
University
(MTSU), and Tennessee
Tennessee
State University
University
(TSU). Prior to the establishment of the West Tennessee
Tennessee
Normal School pursuant to the General Education Bill, a number of higher education departments existed in Memphis under the banner of the University
University
of Memphis. This earlier University
University
of Memphis was formed in 1909 by adding to an already existing medical school departments of pharmacy, dentistry, and law.[14] On September 10, 1912, West Tennessee
Tennessee
Normal School opened in Memphis; its first president was Seymour A. Mynders. By 1913 all departments of the earlier University
University
of Memphis, except the law school, had been taken over by West Tennessee
Tennessee
Normal School.[14][15] After Mynders' death in 1913, John Willard Brister was chosen to take his place. After Brister's resignation in 1918, Andrew A. Kincannon became president. In 1924, Brister returned to his post as president of the school. The name changed in 1925 to West Tennessee
Tennessee
State Teachers College. In 1931, the campus' first newspaper, The Tiger Rag, was established. In 1939, Richard C. Jones became president of WTSTC. In 1941, the name was changed to Memphis State College, when the college expanded its liberal arts curriculum. In 1943, Dr. Jennings B. Sanders succeeded Jones as president. Three years later, the first alumnus to become president, J. Millard (Jack) Smith, was appointed. In 1951 MSC awarded its first B.A. degrees. In 1957 the school received full University status and changed its name accordingly to Memphis State University. In 1959, five years after Brown v. Board of Education
Brown v. Board of Education
the university admitted its first black students. Racial segregation
Racial segregation
was the norm throughout the South at the time. The Memphis State Eight, as they were known, were admitted to Memphis State University. Their presence on campus was the focus not only of intense media scrutiny, but severe criticism from much of the local public. Ostensibly for the black students' safety and to maintain an air of calm on the campus, University
University
administrators placed certain restrictions on where and when the black students could be on campus. They were to go only to their classes, not to any of the public places on campus, such as the cafeteria; and they were to leave the campus immediately after they had finished their last class. These limitations were lifted after the novelty of their presence on campus had subsided and the public's focus on their presence there had lessened, and as more and more black students were admitted to the university. Today, black students make up more than one-third of the campus student body and they participate fully in all campus activities. Cecil C. Humphreys became president of MSU, succeeding Smith, in 1960. In 1966, the school began awarding doctoral degrees. Humphreys resigned as MSU president to become the first chancellor of the newly formed State University
University
and Community College System, later renamed the Tennessee
Tennessee
Board of Regents. John Richardson was appointed interim president. In 1973, Dr. Billy Mac Jones became president. Also that year, the Memphis State Tiger men's basketball team reached the finals of the NCAA
NCAA
tournament, only to fall at the hands of a UCLA
UCLA
team led by future NBA superstar and Hall of Famer Bill Walton

in The NCAA Basketball
Basketball
Championship Game in St. Louis, Missouri. In 1980, Thomas Carpenter became president of MSU; he was succeeded by V. Lane Rawlins in 1991. On July 1, 1994, Memphis State University
University
changed its name again, to the University
University
of Memphis. V. Lane Rawlins served from 1991 to 2000; Dr. Ralph Faudree filled in as interim president for one year after V. Lane Rawlins' departure. In 2001, The U of M installed its first female president, Shirley Raines, who retired in the summer of 2013. After a yearlong search, Dr. M. David Rudd was confirmed as the 12th president on May 1, 2014.[16] Campus[edit]

The new Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, a former United States federal courthouse, opened in 2010.

The University
University
of Memphis campus is located approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) east of downtown in the University
University
District neighborhood of east Memphis. It has an area of 1,160 acres (4.7 km2), although this figure does not include the law school in the former United States federal customshouse in downtown Memphis, which opened in January 2010. The historical core of campus encompasses approximately 30 acres (120,000 m2).

Wilder Tower; the tallest building of the University's main campus

Campus planners have significantly increased the amount of green space and the number of walkways over the past several years, while maintaining a focus on the original historic architecture of the campus. Surrounding the university's main campus are several historic neighborhoods to the north and east, as well as the University District neighborhood and the commercial Highland Strip to the west. Many University
University
of Memphis college students also reside in housing south of the main campus. Layout[edit] The University
University
of Memphis campus is set out in a rectilinear format, planned as a geometric design similar to the Jeffersonian style of the University
University
of Virginia. Despite gradual expansion of the campus to the West and South, the campus is fairly compact and retains a park-like, tree-lined setting. The farthest distance on campus takes about twenty-five minutes to walk. According to the most recent master plan. The University
University
of Memphis is projected to expand and redevelop additional areas one block west of the main campus' current western boundary of Patterson St., making Highland Avenue the "de facto" entrance to the university. Main campus[edit]

The FedEx Institute of Technology
FedEx Institute of Technology
is a major research contributor in the areas of Supply Chain Management, robotics, and intelligent systems.

The center of the main campus comprises buildings that made up the original campus. The first college buildings, including Scates Hall, Manning Hall, and The Administration Building, were erected in the early 20th century. This section stretches from Deloach Ave. south to the end of the main campus at Walker Ave., with most buildings surrounding The Alumni Mall and Student Plaza. The majority of the buildings of the arts and humanities departments, as well as those of the Physics and Astronomy departments of the College of Arts and Science, are located in the original areas of campus.

Scates Hall, the 3rd oldest building on campus

Flanking the original area of campus to the east are the areas of major research for The Life Sciences and Engineering departments, including J.R. Smith Hall, The Life Sciences Building and The Herff College of Engineering Complex, as well as The Education Department, residing in E.C. Ball Hall, and the Art Museum of the University
University
of Memphis, located in the Communication and Fine Arts building. The Ned R. McWherter Library, a state-of-the art library facility and one of the premier research libraries of the Mid-South United States, takes up the eastern part of the campus adjacent to Dunavant Plaza and Emeriti Grove. The northwestern area of the main campus includes The Fogelman College of Business and Economics, The Fogelman Executive Center (a major conference center for regional executives visiting The University
University
of Memphis), and The FedEx Institute of Technology, a major research contributor in the areas of Supply Chain Management, Nanotechnology, Robotics and Intelligent Systems. Originally, in the north end of the campus, Norriswood Ave. was the northern boundary and was an actual street that ran through the campus. The campus expanded into this area in the late 1960s & early 1970s. The western edge and southwest corner include Johnson Hall (comprising the Geography and Geology Departments), Patterson Hall (housing the English department), Wilder Tower, Greek Row, and the bulk of The University
University
of Memphis residence halls. As The University
University
of Memphis presses ahead with its planned expansion, many more facilities, pedestrian access, and green space will also be created with the renovation and development of the currently residential block east of Patterson St. in the University
University
District neighborhood. On January 29, 2013, Governor Bill Haslam
Bill Haslam
announced a $44.6 million state budget pledge for the Community Health Building, which will be the new home of The Loewenberg School of Nursing and The College of Communication Sciences and Disorders. The University
University
of Memphis was required to raise $15 million from private funds to match the state funds. In 2017, the University
University
announced plans for a new Veterans Care Center on campus. Located in the Psychological Services Center on campus, the Veterans Care Center "will address the mental health needs of veterans, regardless of era, gender, discharge status or service connection."[17] Park Avenue Campus[edit] Directly south of the main campus along the corner of Park Avenue and Getwell Road sits the Park Avenue Campus. The Park Avenue Campus is home not only to various intramural athletics programs and facilities, but also to various research facilities, classrooms and the Speech and Audiology Pathology Center. The Defense Contract Audit Agency
Defense Contract Audit Agency
also operates its main training facility on the Park Avenue Campus. Future plans include a regulation indoor soccer stadium and track facility, capable of hosting large-scale NCAA
NCAA
Division I track-and-field meets.[18] The graduate and family housing units are located at Park Avenue, 1 mile (1.6 km) from the main university campus. The complex has 150 housing units.[19] Residents are zoned to Memphis City Schools.[20] The zoned schools are Sherwood Elementary School,[21] Colonial Middle School,[22] and White Station High School.[23] Downtown Law School Campus[edit] In 2010, the University
University
of Memphis, School of Law was moved permanently from the main campus to a newly renovated downtown campus. The new University
University
of Memphis, School of Law campus sits adjacent to downtown courts and the financial and administrative center of the city. Lambuth Campus[edit] In 2011, the University
University
of Memphis began offering undergraduate and graduate programs on the former Lambuth University campus in Jackson, Tennessee, located approximately 80 miles (130 km) east of Memphis. Now known as the University
University
of Memphis Lambuth Campus, the historic campus includes classroom buildings, dormitories, library, planetarium, and athletic facilities. As of the fall of 2016, official enrollment had risen to 934 students.[24] Environmentalism[edit] The Edward J. Meeman Biological Station of the University
University
of Memphis conducts research in ecology, environmental biology, and natural history. It is named for Edward J. Meeman, an editor of the former Memphis Press-Scimitar
Memphis Press-Scimitar
newspaper who later established a foundation to fund environmental studies.[25] In 2007, President Shirley Raines signed the American College and University
University
President's Climate Commitment (ACUPCC), which requires that the university become carbon neutral.[26] The Green Campus Initiative works to develop and implement a strategic plan to achieve the goals of the APUPCC. Successful events and projects include the May 2009 2nd Annual E-Recycling Day, resulting in 155 tons of electronic items collected, and the Tiger Initiative for Gardening in Urban Settings (TIGUrS), a fruit and vegetable gardening initiative across campus.[27] In April 2008, the student-run Environmental Action Club ran a Green Power Campaign to promote a student referendum to add a "Green Fee" to tuition payments to fund clean, renewable energy and other campus sustainability projects. The referendum passed with a 69% student approval rate. The university is now purchasing renewable energy through the TVA's Green Power Switch program and offsetting 10% of current energy use.[28] It is now the 2nd largest green power purchaser in the entire TVA distribution region.[29] In February 2009, the TERRA (Technologically and Environmentally Responsive Residential Architecture) sustainable design demonstration house was completed. Designed by the Department of Architecture, the LEED Platinum TERRA house serves as a studio for which architecture and design students to design "green" housing within urban areas, as well as serve as a demonstration house open for tours and serving as an educational tool for the community.[30] Memphis received a grade of "C" on the 2009 Campus Sustainability Report Card published by the Sustainable Endowments Institute.[31] Only 34 schools earned a higher grade.[32] Athletics[edit] Main article: Memphis Tigers Activities[edit] Clubs and organizations[edit] The Daily Helmsman[edit] The Daily Helmsman
The Daily Helmsman
is the student newspaper of the University
University
of Memphis. The editorially independent student newspaper of the university publishes 5,500 copies a day, four days a week, and employs a paid staff of more than 30, which includes an editorial team of six, more than 20 staff writers, photographers, copy editors, and other staff members during the Fall and Spring semesters. The publication is part of a tradition which began in 1931 as The Tiger Rag, a protest newspaper. Since that time, the newspaper has been continuously published by University
University
of Memphis students. Even during World War II when paper and other resources were scarce, the newspaper published as a newsletter posted on bulletin boards around campus. The name of the newspaper was changed to The Helmsman in 1972, and became The Daily Helmsman
The Daily Helmsman
in 1981, when the newspaper began publishing four days a week. The Helmsman has won many honors over the years for reporting, photography and design, including awards given by the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, Columbia University
University
and the Southeastern Journalism Conference. Helmsman alumni have gone on to jobs at many prestigious news organizations, such as The New York Times, Rolling Stone magazine, and Southern Living
Southern Living
magazine, among others. In 2012, The Helmsman and then-Editor-in-Chief Chelsea Boozer were awarded the College Press Freedom Award for their efforts fighting "a retaliatory budget cut while enduring a campaign of harassment by campus police."[33] The award is given annually by the Student Press Law Center and the Associated Collegiate Press. Boozer also won a national Investigative Reporters and Editors award for coverage of how student activity fees are spent, including how the Student Government Association writes its senior officers free tuition, parking and stipends out of the money collected from the student body.

Traditions[edit] The University
University
of Memphis has accumulated numerous traditions over its long history as the flagship public research university within the Tennessee
Tennessee
Board of Regents system. Mighty Sound of the South[edit] Main article: Mighty Sound of the South The Mighty Sound of the South Band is the university's band. The band performs at Memphis Tigers
Memphis Tigers
football games as a marching band and at Tigers basketball games as a pep band. As one of the oldest institutions at the university, the Band partakes in many of the game day traditions. The MSS performs more than any other student ensemble on campus, and for approximately 350,000 fans each fall. The MSS is featured at nearly every campus-wide event, ranging from Freshman Convocation
Convocation
to the Homecoming Parade and Pep Rally. The band has been featured on the nationally syndicated "Mike & Mandy" Radio Show, and is a star attraction at the Bandmaster's Championship, a high school marching band contest administered by The University
University
of Memphis Band Alumni Chapter. Members of the MSS represent all academic disciplines across campus, and historically has been open to all students via audition. Mascot[edit] Main article: TOM (mascot) For over 30 years, the sideline mascot for The University
University
of Memphis has been a live Bengal tiger
Bengal tiger
named TOM. During this time, the university has hosted three successive tigers, known respectively as TOM I, TOM II, and TOM III. The university also has a costumed tiger mascot known as Pouncer. TOM III, the current Tiger mascot, attends all Tiger football home games and other University
University
events. TOM III travels in a climate-controlled trailer with a police escort. TOM III is housed and cared for by the Highland Hundred Tiger Guard, an alumni booster organization in a $300,000 facility. TOM II matured, eventually weighing more than 500 pounds (230 kg). The University
University
of Memphis is one of only two universities in America with a live tiger mascot (the other being LSU in Baton Rouge). After being diagnosed with mouth cancer, TOM II was euthanized on October 15, 2008, at the age of 17. The team of veterinarians who oversaw TOM II decided this was necessary to ensure he did not suffer due to his illness. The Highland Hundred football booster group found a replacement for the mascot in the tiger cub TOM III. The university currently has fifty tiger statues located on campus and another fifty located around the Memphis area. The Alumni Association placed the life-sized tigers around the city in honor of the University's Centennial in January 2012.[34] Nickname[edit] When the University
University
of Memphis first fielded a football team in the fall of 1912, no one had selected a nickname for the squad. Early references to the football team tabbed them only as the Blue and Gray Warriors. After the final game of the 1914 season, there was a student parade. During this event, several university students shouted, "We fight like Tigers!" The nickname was born. As time passed, the nickname "Tigers" was increasingly used, particularly in campus publications, but did not catch on with the newspapers downtown. They continued to use "the Blue and Gray" when referring to the university. Under Coach Lester Barnard in 1922, Memphis's football team gave a ring of truth to that old student yell about Tigers. The team adopted a motto – "Every Man a Tiger" – and went on to score 174 points while allowing its opponents just 29 points. The Tiger nickname continued with students and alumni, eventually being adopted as the official nickname for the University
University
of Memphis in 1939. Song[edit] Notable among a number of songs commonly played and sung at various events such as commencement and convocation, and athletic games is "Go! Tigers! Go!", the University
University
of Memphis Tigers' fight song. The fight song was written by Tom Ferguson, former Director of Bands at Memphis State University
University
during the 1960s. Special
