MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The University of Memphis says it plans to start a culinary institute.

A news release says the Tennessee university’s Board of Trustees approved the Culinary Arts and Foodservice Enterprise at a meeting Wednesday.

The institute is expected to be located at the former L’Ecole Culinaire facility in the Memphis suburb of Cordova. The lease requires State Building Commission approval.

At the meeting, trustees also approved doctorate programs in applied physics and health sciences, a master’s program in data science, and a bachelor’s degree in public health.
