BHSU is now home to the South Dakota GEAR UP Program, funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. (GEAR UP stands for Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Program.) The fact that this grant was awarded to BH is a credit to the university as a whole and particularly to the work of Dr. Urla Marcus, Director of the Center for American Indian Studies, and Dr. June Apaza, Director of CAMSE and Education and Outreach for SURF. Together they are overseeing this work.
