Join the #OneUniversityCampaign as we gather to demand equitable funding for our UM-Flint and UM-Dearborn campuses at the LAST U-M Regents meeting before the University budget is finalized.

We will host a complimentary picnic with former gubernatorial candidate Dr. Abdul El-Sayed before packing the U-M Regents Meeting and supporting our speakers.

Undergraduate students, graduate students, lecturers, tenure-track faculty, and concerned community members are coming together for our state and our collective future – because we believe the #LeadersAndBest can do better. Join us!

Don’t know what the One University Campaign is?

We are campaigning for equitable resource allocation across all three campuses of the University of Michigan. Despite the fact that the University of Michigan sits on a massive surplus of funds, the UM-Flint and UM-Dearborn Campuses are not receiving nearly enough money to support their students, faculty, and staff.Since Dearborn and Flint campuses sit within the University of Michigan and disproportionately represent lower-income students, Michigan-resident students of color, and first-generation students, we believe that the President and the Board of Regents and the State have an obligation to fund them at more equitable levels.
