Become an "Element of Success!"

Helping students succeed is at the core of UM-Flint. Join our “Elements of Success” campaign, and show your commitment to student achievement. As part of the Murchie Science Building (MSB) expansion, UM-Flint will install a large periodic table of elements in a prominent public space within the building. Each of the 118 elements will feature a donor(s) who champions student success at UM-Flint. Choose your element today to be part of this unique display of support.

Installation Details

The display in MSB will consist of 118 (5.83” x 5.83”) translucent panels mounted to create a colorful, attention grabbing exhibit that draws visitor’s interest and encourages them to learn about both the generous contributions of our donors as well as the periodic table. Each individual tile will feature the periodic table element information appearing as etching along with the donor’s name in opaque white with up to three lines of text available, 17 characters (including spaces) per line. The installation is expected to take place in January 2021.
