The first group of University of Michigan-Flint students to participate in the Wyatt Exploration Program will leave for Poland on Monday. Twelve history majors and four history faculty members will be going to Krakow. The group will stay there until May 17.
The Wyatt Exploration Program is made possible by the generous bequest of Dr. Dorothea E.Wyatt. A stalwart supporter of her university and discipline, Wyatt's extraordinary gift was made to further develop and improve the program in history here at UM-Flint. She was one of the original sixteen faculty members of the Flint College of the University of Michigan when it was founded in 1956. She was the first chair of the Department of History.
Each year, the Wyatt Exploration Program will provide a unique and exciting opportunity for students and faculty to join together in intellectual exploration of the human past. Organized by the Department of History through financial support of the Wyatt Endowment, the program will focus on the history and culture of a specific place or on a particular historical topic. This theme will change on an annual basis.
