Collaborative Partnerships

Utah State University established STARS! (Science, Technology, Arithmetic, Reading Students) GEAR UP collaborative connections with academic, community, and business partners. The partnerships are the foundation of the work that we do to increase high school graduation rates, and create a pipeline of academically-prepared students enrolling and succeeding in college.

The USU STARS! GEAR UP project partners with departments, colleges and universities, local organizations and nationally renowned educational companies to help build an educational pipeline for students to realize their college dreams. By building a supporting network made up of schools, parents, businesses, and community organizations, we are committed to empowering all GEAR UP students for success.
