All About UM-Flint

Today, nearly 7,000 students are enrolled at UM-Flint. UM-Flint faculty from over 100 areas of study. Five major academic units, consisting of the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Management, the College of Health Sciences, the School of Education and Human Services, and the School of Nursing, offer students a wide variety of degree programs. A sixth unit, the College of Innovation and Technology, will launch in Fall 2021. 

Professors pour their expertise and creativity into the development of research and service-learning projects that match course curriculum with the world’s most-pressing issues. These projects bring learning to life, address community needs, and fulfill students’ desires to contribute to the common good. This dedication to service has earned UM-Flint many accolades.  In 2010 and again in 2019, UM-Flint received the prestigious Carnegie Classification for Civic Engagement. Then in 2012, UM-Flint was selected as the first recipient of the “Engaged Campus of Year Award” presented by the Michigan Campus Compact.

In 2016, UM-Flint marked its 60th anniversary, celebrating its position as one of only three campuses of the world-renowned University of Michigan. Today, the campus continues to undergo a transformation as it grows academically with new undergraduate and graduate degree offerings, expanding partnerships with local and regional entities and industries, and remains committed to the ideals of diversity, equity and inclusion by making an affordable, accessible education possible to the community.

Student Involvement & Leadership

There are many ways that you can get involved during your time at the University of Michigan-Flint. We encourage you to join or start a student club/organization, become a member of a fraternity or sorority, attend a program sponsored by the Center for Gender & Sexuality or the Intercultural Center, participate in a program sponsored by the Campus Activities Board (CAB), or play in a club sport.

The work of Student Involvement & Leadership (SIL) is about learning, engagement, and inclusion. Our goal is to offer opportunities for students to:

• Become engaged and responsible leaders
• Develop life skills and an understanding of one’s values, interests, and goals
• Think critically and creatively, solve problems and develop new ideas
• Be inclusive of people with various identities and perspectives, while embracing a diverse campus community

We know that students’ education success is increased when they are active participants in the learning process both in and outside of the classroom. Involving every student in a meaningful way to learn and develop themselves leads to a rich and transformational college experience.
