Thank you for your continued support of the University of Memphis as a member of the MIS Advisory Council. As leaders for the University and as leaders in MIS, we collectively share in an effort to enhance the academic program and student quality in the MIS Department at the University.
Our MIS Advisory Council operates under a separate charter that permits us to support specific activities of interest to our members. To this end, the charter dictates that the MIS Advisory Council have a separate and unique Development Fund to be used to support activities of the Council as well as areas of enhancement within the department that Council members feel will add value to the program and thus provide better graduates for companies in the Mid-South area and elsewhere. To this end, no money from the MIS Advisory Council Development Fund will be used for operational activities within the department. The departmental budget is separate.
The MIS Advisory Council Charter recommends a $1,000 donation to the MIS Advisory Council Development Fund each year. Funds donated to the MIS Advisory Council Fund fully count toward donations to the University Academic Fund and are currently matched dollar for dollar by a generous donor. In addition, donors of $1000 or more annually to an academic area become members of the President’s Society and are invited to special celebrations. However, Council members can donate more or less. The idea is that donations by individual members can collectively provide a sum large enough to permit the Council to have more activities that enhance students. For example, the Council decided this year to provide funds to support two scholarships for qualified junior/senior MIS majors and funds to recognize teaching excellence with a plaque to a deserving faculty member in the MIS Department.
