Making a positive difference in the lives of all people within our community is what the University of Michigan-Flint was founded to do. Community Relations connects UM-Flint to its neighbors: civic organizations, local businesses, and governmental agencies in Genesee County and beyond.
The University of Michigan-Flint is proud to be an anchor institution in the Flint region. Born from the will of the community over 60 years ago, we take very seriously our role as a community partner, and campus works regularly with both the city and local community. With more than 8,000 students, faculty and staff — we would not be able to function efficiently, much less succeed as a world-class public institution, without the support, collaboration, and planning of our partners in the greater Flint area.
Community Relations is responsible for coordinating and maintaining positive working relations with the Flint and Genesee County community.
