FLINT, Mich. (AP) - The University of Michigan-Flint has launched a $40 million fundraising campaign to expand opportunities and support for students.

The three-pronged Victors for Michigan campaign was announced Monday. The Flint Journal (https://bit.ly/1L8w4ZT ) reports that the campaign’s goals include providing scholarships, internships, study abroad opportunities, hands-on learning opportunities and faculty support to students.

School officials also want to build an Urban Community Research Center and enhance the existing Francis Willson Thompson Library.

A 24-member committee has been formed to help the campaign reach its fundraising goal.

Donors already have committed nearly $17 million.
