About this grant

The University of Michigan-Flint is an anchor institution in downtown Flint. In that role, it provides both educational and economic benefit to the broader community. The Riverfront Residence Hall and Event Center is the only conference space in the city of Flint large enough to host regional and national conferences and seminars, but the movable wall that allows that space to be reconfigured for various events is inoperable. Grant support will replace the wall and allow the grantee to fully realize the educational and economic benefits of the conference center facility.
