Engaged Learning Works

UM-Flint owes its existence to the principle that "knowledge is power" only when it is successfully applied.

In 1956, Ann Arbor's higher education experts put their talents towards the establishment of a new University of Michigan campus. From the outset, the University of Michigan-Flint would define success by the results real people achieve in the real world. Today, UM-Flint is a global leader in this active, engaged approach to higher education.

Engaged learning not only puts theory to the test, it enhances skills, deepens connections, and grows confidence. This is what the best employers and graduate schools expect. This is what communities like Flint need. This is how UM-Flint creates “leaders and best.”
