Located in the heart of Flint, Michigan, a city in the midst of writing its first new master plan in 50years, The University of Michigan-Flint has a uniqueopportunity to play a vital role in the renewal and improvement of thedowntown area. A major 
 part of the University’s role
in improving the downtown has been its efforts to improve bicycle and  pedestrian facilities on and around campus.
 
As a result of theseongoing efforts by city and university organizations, Uof M

Flint was recently named a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly University by the League of American Bicyclists.

U of M Flint must accommodatethis growing trend to remain competitive with other institutions and  promote the growth of thecampus community, whilekeeping in mind theimportance of facilitating and encouraging an activeliving lifestyle for thecampus and surrounding community.-Team BENCH
