About this grant

This grant provides renewal support for key initiatives at Kettering University, an anchor institution of higher education in the Flint community. In 2012, under the leadership of a new president, the university will focus its strategic attention on increasing enrollment through targeted recruitment, program development, need-based scholarships, and pre-college programs; a branding and marketing campaign; transformation of the convenience store at Chevrolet and University avenues into a police mini-station and eatery; and increasing alumni engagement.
