Town & Gown Community Partnership

Our University Town & Gown Partnership is an important and ongoing collaboration between community and campus. Membership driven, our Town & Gown partners include leaders from Murray State University administration, local and state government, educational professionals, industry, small business, banking, health care providers, and more. Town & Gown activities provide opportunities for dialogue on a variety of quality of life issues between leaders who might not otherwise engage one another on common issues. Town & Gown projects are funded by the university and membership fees and are selected to improve the quality of living and learning in Calloway County and our region.

For more information on University Town & Gown or to inquire about membership or upcoming events, please contact the program coordinator, Jennifer Robertson, at 270.809.3924 or email jrobertson38@murraystate.edu.
