A Welcome from the Chancellor

This great institution of higher learning is located in the heart of Flint, Michigan. Our outstanding faculty, supportive staff, and beautiful campus offer students an optimal setting for an ideal educational experience. As one of the three campuses of the University of Michigan, the University of Michigan-Flint mission is best summarized by the symbolic usage of three pillars which fittingly describe the foundation of our mission: Academic excellence, student centeredness, and civic engagement.

Each day at the University of Michigan-Flint is full of discovery and innovation. We challenge students to realize their greatest potential, offering guidance for the infinite ways they can have a positive impact on the future. Students can choose to customize their educational experience, participating in programs that offer the opportunity for hands-on learning, research, or even international travel. The possibilities are truly limitless, preparing our students to compete on the global stage.

The University of Michigan-Flint is an active member of the community, encouraging groups to convene on campus. Through collaboration and partnership, we work with other local entities with the common goal of creating solutions and celebrations of success. Our shared belief is that we must set an example for our students, showing them the importance and value of an engaged citizenry.

I am proud to serve as the chancellor of this exceptional university which serves over 8,000 students and is connected to more than 30,000 alumni who live and work around the world. I invite you to visit our campus, and see exactly why the University of Michigan-Flint is truly a special place. 

Go Blue!

Chancellor Ruth J. Person
