MI GEAR UP/4S Pathways at Central Michigan University has partnered with The Facing Project to tell a set of stories told by first generation students, staff, and alumni of CMU. Participants, of our project  entitled First Generation: Facing College, ​share their experiences being the first to fac​e college

The Facing Project a country wide endeavor that began in Muncie, I​ndiana where writers collaborate with storytellers to speak about their personal journeys. Each Facing Project theme is selected by the area or school based upon a relevant topic in their community. The idea is that everyone is facing something from addiction to mental illness to racism.
