Graduate Memphis

Graduate Memphis is an action initiative of Leadership Memphis and the Memphis Talent Dividend: College Attainment Initiative. It is affiliated with the Talent Dividend Network and the Graduate Network.

Our mission is to increase the number of adults with quality post-secondary credentials in the Memphis Metropolitan Area. These credentials could be certificates from technical schools to Associate’s degrees or Bachelor’s degrees. What’s important is that every Memphian has an opportunity to pursue his or her dreams and have the opportunity to prepare through higher education.

Graduate Memphis has a strategic partnership with the City of Memphis/Memphis Public Library and has been funded through a generous grant from Plough Foundation. It has partnered with local colleges and universities that are fully regionally accredited, have high graduation rates, and offer courses that are flexible, focused, and convenient for adults.
