Textbooks and materials
Students will always need to purchase their own textbooks. Students can find course materials and textbooks for courses at the University of Michigan-Flint Bookstore. Books come with ISBN numbers so that students can purchase the correct book edition. Please contact Anna Swartz (email@example.com, 810-762-3160) to arrange to pick up your School of Management bag, padfolio, and name tent for class.
Blackboard is our online learning environment, where faculty present course content to students, including syllabus, announcements, documents, test, discussion boards, and more.
