As the Program Director, you will lead the daily operations of our GEAR UP federal grant program. The federal grant program is designed to increase the number of low-income students who are prepared to enter and succeed in postsecondary education. You will develop strategic partnership with schools, community partners and other U-M departments to deliver on the goals of the program. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are cornerstones for this position and the program it supports. Though your office is in Ann Arbor, the work requires regular on-site visits at partner schools in Detroit and may include working occasional evenings and weekends. The federal GEAR UP program will join and be strategically integrated into the Center for Educational Outreach, a central unit, which includes the College Advising Corps program and is committed to increasing college readiness across the state.
