The McLean Institute seeks to provide exemplar models and best practices by piloting programs which fight poverty through education.

Our key initiatives approach education broadly, with the goal of raising the qualify of life in Mississippi communities.

Horizons at the University of Mississippi combats summer learning loss, the 1:1 Fund provides matched savings accounts so low-income students can save for college, and the Delta Leadership Institute trains leaders across the greater Delta region in best practices around community and economic development. The McLean Institute also works closely with programs funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service to expand opportunities to University of Mississippi students and community partners.
