University of Michigan Flint

Flint, Michigan, United States

About

History

In a 1837 letter to family back east, Ann Arbor resident Sarah C. Miles Case wrote, “A branch of the Michigan University at Ann Arbor is to be established in Flint at some future day.”  In 1970, the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools accredited what was then called Flint College. Today, some 8,600 students are enrolled at UM-Flint. 

Research

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs offers integrated research support for faculty, staff, and students. Whether it's by assisting faculty with developing funding proposals, connecting undergraduate students with hands-on research experiences, by providing opportunities for students and faculty to present their research, or by supporting investigators through the entire project lifecycle, it is our goal to foster a culture of research at UM-Flint.
