UM-Flint block M logo and Project 2020 logo in Michigan blue. Project 2020 is designed to reposition UM-Flint for the next 20 years.

The 2017 campus strategic plan continues to guide the overall activities of the institution and the academic programs of the five schools and colleges. The continuous enrollment decline over the last five years presents significant financial challenges and if not addressed with urgency will hamper growth and quality of educational offerings further impacting enrollment and institutional capacity. With a relatively flat state appropriation, it is imperative that we grow annual enrollment since tuition is the primary source of revenue.


  • increase recruitment, retention, and graduation (RRG) rates and grow total enrollment back to the pre-decline 2014 levels of 8,500.
  • develop new programs, including a new School of Technology, aligned with market demands and job placements that will sustainably grow UM-Flint's enrollment to 10,000.

Project 2020 will be implemented over the next five years.
