Welcome to UT Austin GEAR UP. UT Austin GEAR UP is spearheaded by the Institute of Public School Initiatives housed at the College of Education at The University of Texas at Austin. Currently, we hold 2017 and 2018 GEAR UP Partnership Grants funded by the Department of Education. We serve 12 school districts in the Greater Austin, San Antonio, and East Texas Regions.
UT Austin GEAR UP’s goal is to ensure that our students are prepared for, pursue and succeed in postsecondary education whether that be a bachelors degree, associates degree, certificate, apprenticeship, and other training.
