The #umflint story, told by the people who live it.
The faculty, staff, and students of the University of Michigan-Flint have earned the reputation for making positive contributions to communities near and far through actions large and small. Those initiatives occur throughout the year, taking various forms, and pursuing different goals. However, during the holiday season each year, the number of “good works” organized by members of the UM-Flint community reach their peak.
