Office of Development - Alumni Engagement

As Mississippi's only academic health sciences center, the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC) serves all of the people of our state through our seven schools, four hospitals and dozens of outreach programs.

Our mission is to be a great, comprehensive, public institution of higher learning. We strive to enhance the educational, economic, health care, social and cultural foundations of the state, region and nation.

UMMC receives approximately 11 percent of its operating funds from the State of Mississippi. The dramatic improvements in our programs and facilities that we have made would not have been possible without substantial private philanthropic support.

We invite you to join us on our journey of healing and discovery, and we appreciate all that you do to improve the health of our people and state.
