Eastern Michigan University closing Flint site
Eastern Michigan University plans to close its site in Flint at the end of the current semester, the university announced Friday.
The number of courses and enrollment in courses at the Flint site has significantly decreased in recent semesters, EMU said. This semester, EMU is offering only a single course with an enrollment of nine students.
EMU’s Flint presence began in the 1950s, when city wanted to start a community education program in its public schools, the university said in a press release. Frank Manley, a physical education graduate from EMU, was hired to direct the program.
EMU began offering master’s degrees in community education at Flint Community College, which now is Mott Community College. EMU has had a presence in Flint ever since.
