Never give up. It is a phrase we hear often throughout our lives. Both mantra and motivator, the phrase embodies the spirit of resilience. Resilience can be found throughout our community, from the students who work hard to earn their degrees to the volunteers who lend a hand where it is needed most.
The 2015-2016 Frances Willson Thompson Critical Issue Forum honors those who persevere, employing grit and gumption, to make things happen. The experts who will come to the University of Michigan-Flint for this year long speaker series will examine the characteristics of grit and the notion of resilience through the prisms of socio-economic status, character, education, and ethics.
We hope you will join us for this year-long annual event.
