Living on campus offers you a unique opportunity to engage with your peers, to invest in meaningful relationships, and learn with classmates who bring different identities and perspectives from all over the world into the halls.

Clark is also responsible for HRL's Guest and Conference Program that hosts artists, educators, and visitors to Flint and the University. When he’s not on campus Clark is likely on an adventure with his niece and nephews, exploring new hiking and kayaking spots with his dog Mel, or hunkered down with a good book and a strong cup of coffee.
