UM-Flint offers degrees in over 100 undergraduate and 26 graduate areas, including two doctorate programs. We are one of only 311 universities nationwide to receive the Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement. We are one of only 14 institutions in the country to be designated a Tillman Scholars campus for military veterans by the Pat Tillman Foundation. For 10 consecutive years, the Princeton Review has named UM-Flint one of the best colleges and universities in the Midwest. Students at UM-Flint are taught 100% by faculty, not by teaching assistants. The student to faculty ratio is 17-1. Our School of Management is listed in The Best 300 Business Schools: 2011 Edition (Random House/Princeton Review). By 2015, a $22,170,000 renovation of the UM-Flint science building will be completed that will revitalize classrooms and laboratories to better prepare K-12 science teachers, as well as those pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Campus Location - UM-Flint is situated on 76 acres along the north and south banks of the Flint River in the heart of a revitalized Downtown Flint. New restaurants like the Flint Crepe Company, Blackstones Irish Pub, and Hoffmans Deco Deli with attached antique store are a few favorites. Open year round, the award winning Flint Farmers Market is within walking distance, as is The Flint Cultural Center, The Flint Institute of Arts, Flint Institute of Music, The Whiting, Sloan Museum, and Longway Planetarium.

Helpful Information - Students at UM-Flint find the faculty and staff to be passionate about their work, the students, and about the City of Flint. We are a close knit group that care not only about our students education, but about who they are, where they are going, and what they want to become. Faculty and Staff at UM-Flint take the time to care about individuals, and go above and beyond to give our students the best experience possible, from the faculty to the grounds keepers. We are the jewel of Flint.
