MSU College of Human Medicine Receives $9 Million Grant from C.S. Mott Foundation

Gubcio

Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine received a $9 million grant from the C.S. Mott Foundation that will allow it to double the amount of students being trained and working in Flint.

According to MLive, when announcing the grant, the Mott Foundation said the money will also help to bring top public health researchers here, and to secure its public health program in the city. Mott has also said that a core goal of the public health program is for Flint to develop a national research reputation in the field of public health.

The $9 million grant is the latest step in the over two years of developments focused on locating the MSU school in the former Flint Journal building. The MSU Board of Trustees voted more than a year ago to pursue a 20-year lease in the former Journal building paying an estimated $700,000 a year in rent to occupy 40,000 square feet for office and teaching space. MSU’s College of Human Medicine first announced plans in 2011 to expand the programs into Flint.
