GEAR UP Summer Bridge

GEAR UP Summer Bridge is a free program that gives GEAR UP students attending UVU this fall an opportunity to connect with peers and mentors, attend individualized workshops, and receive support as they transition to college. Get personalized help from UVU faculty with English and Math to prep you for your Fall courses and have the opportunity to attend professional development workshops to strenghten your resume.

Math Workshop: Students will refine their math skills with ALEKS (an online tutoring program) with professor assistance.

English Workshop:  Learn how to properly format, cite, and summarize an article, as well as develop understanding of key concepts such as rhetoric, literacy, and discourse communities.  Successful completion leads to possible leadership opportunities as a peer mentor/coach for next incoming cohort. And, complete the first assignment of ENGL 1010 ahead of the course.
