Kettering hosts Flint athletic community

In 2012, Kettering University adopted ‘Community Vitality’ as one of its key strategic pillars. Since that time, Kettering students, faculty, staff alumni and many other stakeholders have engaged in the Flint area and made Kettering a leading force in the city’s continued revitalization. This August, as part of that community engagement initiative, Kettering is hosting three of Flint’s signature events right here on campus. Please be advised that this could cause some additional traffic and increased number of visitors in the parking lots.
