This grant will enable the University of Michigan-Flint, via the Office of Educational Opportunity Initiatives, to continue the Committed to Excellence and Opportunity pre-college program for students from the Flint, Beecher, and Westwood Heights school districts. Participating students have increased their grade-point averages and benefited from numerous tutoring and mentoring activities that have aided in their academic development. Seventy-two percent of the students from the pilot cohort in 2010 are still enrolled and are set to graduate and enter college in 2014. Recommended support will allow the program to expand from 170 to 520 students. This is made possible through the Office of Educational Opportunity Initiatives’ restructuring that brought all of its pre-college programs under the Committed to Excellence and Opportunity program. 2014 will mark the first time where the program will be a full-scale grade six through twelve pre-college effort.
This grant provides general purpose support for the Greater Flint Arts Council, an independent agency providing support to local artists and services to supporters of the arts throughout greater Flint. With a goal of being a catalyst for increased artistic and cultural programs for Flint's ethnically diverse community, the Greater Flint Arts Council enriches the community with an array of culturally diverse services, educational programs, publications, and events.
