Description

The McLean Institute for Community Development was founded in 1984 to honor the legacy of newspaper publisher George McLean, whose mission was to raise the quality of life for all Mississippians. McLean understood that universities could be a resource for communities and regions seeking to raise their own quality of life. Today, the McLean Institute for Public Service and Community Engagement is a resource for the entire University of Mississippi campus community, and collaborates with students, faculty and staff around volunteerism, service-learning, community-based research, and community development and social entrepreneurship projects. The McLean Institute then works to leverage these university resources to partner with communities across the state to solve problems relating to poverty.
