The countdown begins! Mark your calendars for DiscoverU Week 2018: October 8-12. It'll be another fun week of college and career exploration for our region's students. On Friday, October 12, most of our districts have the day off, so we're excited for students to participate in community activities!


Are you an elementary or middle school teacher who loves DiscoverU and plans activities every year for your students? If so, join us in early summer for a paid opportunity to help create in-class activities we can share with other teachers in the region.
