Mission & Vision
New Jersey City University's GEAR UP College Bound Program is committed to enhancing each GEAR UP Scholar’s opportunity to successfully graduate from high school and complete a post-secondary education. With adequate preparation, guidance, engagement and empowerment, GEAR UP Scholars who are committed will excel in their studies and every option presented to them. Through educational enrichment, leadership development and community outreach, GEAR UP Scholars will mature both personally and academically and create an environment that inspires change in their communities. It is the goal of NJCU's GEAR UP College Bound Program to ensure that all our GEAR UP Scholars actualize their full potential and pursue lifelong ambitions.
