Theresa Landis
Director of Recreational Services

My time at the University of Michigan-Flint started 20 years ago when I accepted the position of Director of Recreational Services. I have also served as an Adjunct Lecturer for the department of Public Health & Health Sciences since 1998. Both roles allow me the opportunity to provide health promotion education, programs, and services to faculty, staff, students, and community members.

What I love about working at UM-Flint are the people and our location in the heart of the city of Flint. There is a great sense of pride associated with being part of the University as well as the greater Flint community. The people regularly demonstrate their strength and resiliency in the good times and through the challenges. Whether teaching or administering programs and services, it’s been a rewarding experience helping others through recreation, fitness, sports, and other health enhancement opportunities.

Being a first-generation college student, I understand and appreciate the positive impact earning a college degree can have on your life and the lives of your family members. Having a career in higher education was never a path I anticipated or thought possible before going to college. Being a donor is a way to give back to higher education with the goal of sharing the benefits with others. Being part of a collective gift giving effort makes it possible to reach even more people with the resources and experiences that will make a difference in their lives. It has been another way for me to help others improve their quality of life.
