Imagine the difference you can make. University Advancement strengthens the University of Michigan-Flint’s ability to make meaningful connections with each and every member of the university community. Connecting students, alumni, parents and friends, corporations and foundations, faculty and staff is critical to our future. We integrate development, alumni relations, and government relations to build a culture of engagement and philanthropy within the UM-Flint community.
Our Office of Development team solicits donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations to promote learning, research, and education at the University of Michigan-Flint. Our Major Gift Officers represent our campus' schools, programs, and units, and provide fundraising leadership to complement, encourage, and support university-wide efforts to achieve comprehensive objectives for generating financial resources to support students, faculty, and staff.
The Office of Alumni Relations adds value to the alumni experience through fostering university spirit and managing communications. Our programs are designed to build leadership, create traditions, support students, and foster connections among our 30,000 alumni. Our office, in collaboration with the University of Michigan Alumni Association, is your tie to the Leaders and Best.
The Office of Government Relations serves as the primary liaison between the University of Michigan-Flint and all levels of government. Our office offers information on State and Federal higher education issues, information on how you can help UM-Flint promote its legislative goals, tracking key pieces of legislation that may affect our campus, and becoming involved in the "Wolverine Advocates" program. The office is also involved in a number of community based projects that has a direct impact on the university, the City of Flint and greater region that the university serves.
