A Message from the Vice Chancellor

Welcome to the University of Michigan-Flint!

Wherever you plan to go in your professional life, choosing the right college is an important first step and there’s no better time than right now for you to discover how the University of Michigan-Flint can help you get a great start on the road to your future.

As a student on our campus, you will quickly realize, the student comes first. We make sure all of our students have the resources they need to succeed and receive a high-quality education. We offer collaborative, personalized learning with applications beyond the classroom.  With a 14 to 1 student/faculty ratio, we offer you direct access to professors; small and interactive classrooms; and the opportunity to work closely with expert faculty who are passionate about their field of expertise as well as their students’ success.

One of the many things that sets UM-Flint apart from other institutions is our ability to create a customized experience to meet your needs. Here, you are encouraged to explore your interests and passions with individualized learning, hands-on research opportunities, internships related to your studies, meaningful community service, and study-abroad programs that expose you to a world of ideas.

We recognize and celebrate that our student body is extremely diverse.  Our students come from a wide range of ages as well as various cultures and backgrounds, creating a campus community with diverse talents, experiences, and passions. We empower our students to build on these qualities as scholars, creative thinkers and problem solvers.  We know many have jobs, families, long commutes, and a variety of other factors that can make college challenging; and we need you to know we are committed to do all that we can to ensure you not only earn your degree but that you also graduate with options. Your success means success for your family, your community, and our world.

I look forward to seeing you on campus. 

Go Blue!
