Community and economic development highlighted during President Schlissel’s visit to UM-Flint

In March, U-M President Mark Schlissel met with Chancellor Susan E. Borrego at UM-Flint’s new EDA University Center for Community and Economic Development. Schlissel was able to see the new center’s main offices and better understand how the Economic Development Administration designation will help strengthen the campus and community.

The center serves the I-69 Thumb Region and expands University Outreach’s economic development focus beyond Flint to the surrounding seven county region including Shiawassee, Lapeer, St. Clair, Huron, Sanilac, Genesee and Tuscola counties.

The center’s goal is to coordinate, inform and advance efforts to support innovation and high-growth entrepreneurship in the region.
