UM-Flint Sustainability

We are dedicated to developing sustainable solutions at the University of Michigan-Flint through community involvement, applied and interdisciplinary research, and the talents of our operational team. We strive toward sustainability initiatives that are equitable, economically viable, and environmentally responsible.

We are committed to assisting students, faculty, and staff in learning how they can get involved and contribute to creating a culture of sustainability on campus. 

Due to construction at the University Center, our office has been temporarily relocated to French Hall 444 until further notice. For additional information, visit UM-Flint News Now.

Land Acknowledgement 

We want to acknowledge that the land UM-Flint campus occupies today is the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary homeland of many Indigenous nations, most recently the Anishinabek (including Potawatomi), Ojibwe (Chippewa), and Odawa tribal nations.

The dispossession of this land led to genocide, forced relocation, and removal of many from this territory. We honor and respect the many Indigenous people, including those of the Three Fires Alliance, who are still connected to this land.

Resource Toolkit

This toolkit is for U-M students, staff, and faculty who would like to advance sustainability in their day-to-day work and lives. It is meant to bring together the vast number of sustainability resources that are available across U-M’s three campuses and in the local community.
