MI GEAR UP is funded nationally by the U.S. Department of Education and locally by the King Chavez Parks Initiative, Workforce Development Agency. 

MI GEAR UP facilitates student tutoring and mentoring, offers workshops on being a successful college student, developing study skills and multiple financial aid options.

The CMU MI GEAR UP program is in its seventh year working with a cohort of 115 CMU college freshmen. The mission of the MI GEAR UP program is to significantly increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to succeed in post-secondary education.
