我们的历史 & 档案

我们的历史

A group of visionaries from Flint founded Kettering University in 1919 as The School of Automobile Trades. It opened under the direction of Major Albert Sobey with the goal of training technical and management talent for the rapidly growing automobile industry. By 1923 the school had grown to offer a full four-year cooperative education program enrolling more than 600 full-time students, and in recognition of this growth Major Sobey rechristened it the Flint Institute of Technology. Three years later and appreciating the importance of cooperative education, the General Motors Corporation acquired the school, 更名为通用汽车研究所(GMI).

接下来的56年, 通用汽车以GMI的名义运营这所学校, and it became for the company one of its best sources of creative and successful engineering and managerial talent. By 1945 the Institute had added a fifth-year thesis requirement and had evolved into a full degree-granting university with a unique educational model built upon an ongoing and strong commitment to cooperative education.

In 1982, 通用汽车放弃了对这所学校的所有权, 它变成了私人的, 今天的非营利性大学, 但首先是以GMI工程公司的名义 & 管理学院(GMI-EMI). Shortly thereafter the institution began offering Master’s-level graduate programs to both on and off campus students.

1月1日, 1998, GMI-EMI最后一次改名是为了纪念, 查尔斯·凯特林(1876-1958), 一个发明家, 一个实业家, and an early and strong proponent of professional cooperative education. 今天的正规的赌博app, 这所学校延续了这一历史传统, 2019年是它成立100周年. 在那骄傲的100年历史中, 正规的赌博app has become one of the country’s premier STEM institutions and is known around the world for educating great and successful leaders, 企业家, 创新者, 工程师, 科学家们, 商业人士.

档案及特别馆藏

The 正规的赌博app 档案 is located  at Factory One in Flint. The focus at the archives is to preserve and provide access to the history of  正规的赌博app, 汽车工业和弗林特.

The Special Collections and University 档案 was established in 1974, largely through the vision and research interests of Richard P.

The emphasis of the collection documents the early history of the automobile industry—not surprisingly, given the early history of the University itself. 正因为如此, 然而, the collection is also an excellent source for the history of Flint and the history of 正规的赌博app itself; the three are inexorably intertwined.
