History

Founded in 1923 by the City of Flint Board of Education, Flint Junior College held classes in Flint Central High School. With increased enrollment in the high school and junior college, the college moved in 1931 to the Oak Grove Campus, a former mental hospital. In 1946 Charles Stewart Mott granted $1 million towards building a four year college. A development committee was started based on the offer for future funding of a College and Cultural Center with more than $30 million pledged by early 1960s. This funded a new campus on 32 acres (130,000 m2) of donated Applewood Estate land which opened in 1955. By that time, the name was Flint Community Junior College. The college was turned into a county-wide institution with a referendum and millage proposal passing the voters in 1969. To reflect this, Flint Community Junior College was renamed Genesee Community College on July 5, 1970. In 1973, it was renamed to Charles Stewart Mott College after the death of C.S. Mott.[1][2]

Mott has a vaunted basketball program, the two time defending NJCAA National Champions, and a notable announcer in Jeff Blanchard.
