This year, as the University of Michigan-Flint looks back on six decades of educational excellence and commitment to community, the Critical Issues Forum looks forward, into the future. Our future is fraught with interconnected challenges—both locally and globally. However, these interwoven problems also present us with networks of new opportunity. The 2016/2017 Critical Issues Forum will explore the intersecting interests, positive-feedback loops, and virtuous cycles that push progress forever forward.
We hope you will join us for this year-long annual event.
