University Outreach in the News
The University of Michigan-Flint is leading a community-wide online project in which researchers and the public will be able to access a wide variety of data from numerous sources and customize maps.
The project received a $100,000 grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
University Outreach and the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Center will spearhead the initiative, which includes collaborating with an advisory committee of several different community partners.
Boyer Faculty Scholars help further the Boyer program's goal to deepen campus-wide discourse, practice, and recognition of the scholarship of engagement at the university. With their experiences in the Boyer Program, they hope to make contributions to the greater Flint community as well.
Online fundraising is under way in an effort to raise $50,000 for the local nonprofit organization, Our Home Transitional, in order to purchase a house that will provide transitional housing and services to homeless, single female veterans.
Our Home Transitional is a student-run business housed in UM-Flint's Innovation Incubator. The Incubator is part of the Office of University Outreach, which is part of the UM-Flint Provost's Office.
