Basic Information:
  • The University of Michigan–Flint is a public university located in Flint, Michigan in the United States. It is one of the two University of Michigan satellite campuses. The thought of establishing a part of the University of Michigan in the city of Flint started in the year 1837 when Sarah Miles wrote a letter to her family stating, "A branch of the Michigan University at Ann Arbor is to be established in Flint at some future day." In May 1944 the Flint Board of Education requested that the University of Michigan open a satellite campus in Flint. Three years later, the Board of Regents of the University of Michigan funded a study exploring possibilities for higher education in Flint.
