Our Mission

The North Mississippi Education Consortium is a partnership between forty one North Mississippi public school districts, three community colleges, and the University of Mississippi School of Education. Its purpose is to provide a means whereby participating members can assure quality educational programs through cooperative efforts and shared resources, for the benefit of students and communities being served.

These efforts include: pooling local resources for special projects; professional development; sharing of expertise among members; identifying and securing revenues for cooperative projects, and exerting influence on state and national educational issues.

We’re proud to offer some of the best professional development workshops in the South. NMEC works with renowned educators from across the country to develop all of our content and bring it directly to the individuals who need it.



NMEC is overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of consortia members and other academia professionals in Mississippi.
