The #umflint story, told by the people who live it.
The MSPA program will be the first physician assistant program offered at any of the three University of Michigan campuses. The new physician assistant department also will serve as the foundation for the future growth and expansion of related academic offerings. “This is another great example of UM-Flint being responsive to our region’s workforce needs,” said Chancellor Susan E. Borrego. “In conversations with local healthcare leaders, the need for more physician assistants was referenced consistently. We are pleased to offer such a program that will help fill the gap in this area for hospitals across the region and state.”
#TBT: This was a sorority at UM-Flint way back in 1986. It's officially recruitment time for the Interfraternity Council (IFC) and College Panhellenic Association (CPA), and though *this* sorority doesn't exist at UM-Flint anymore, there are lots of fraternities and sororities you can learn about at umflint.edu/greek.
When Janasia Thomas-Gant, a junior majoring in dance with a minor in business, was asked about her academic goals for the semester, she said she plans on leveraging the expertise of her faculty advisor and the UM-Flint Writing Center. “I am going to use the center as a guide on how to write my papers. I like the energy on campus and the people. If you need help, you can find it easily.” #WolverineWednesday
“It was a magical feeling to relive the years that shaped me to be who I am today. I can say, hands down, that my experience at UM-Flint changed my life. It taught me some great values, helped me develop intercultural and people skills, and so much more.”
When asked where he found his passion for volunteering, Gary responded "I owe it to my mom, who’s very active in the community. She’s been involved with the Girl Scouts for over 30 years and is still active. Growing up, I saw her passion for community engagement and it inspired me to get involved." Congratulations on being chosen as Alum of the Month, Gary! It's well deserved.
