Augsburg University StepUP® Program
Fundraiser for Augsburg University

Augsburg University StepUP® Program Christopher is raising money for Augsburg University.

NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO CHOOSE BETWEEN RECOVERY AND A COLLEGE EDUCATION.

The StepUP® Program at Augsburg University strives to help students champion lives of recovery, achieve academic success, and thrive in a community of accountability and support.

Watch this video to see stories of StepUP's impact on students' lives. 

Success in the StepUP program is about more than sobriety - creating an environment where students can grow and learn is essential.

At Augsburg, StepUP students participate in all of the daily aspects of our college’s life - they play varsity sports, study abroad, conduct research with faculty mentors, complete off-campus internships, serve on student government, and participate in the fine arts. They are supported in their recovery in every corner of campus by Augsburg faculty, staff, and their fellow students. 

“We are given an opportunity to watch StepUP students experience the richness of college life, discover their unique gifts and talents, and explore what their futures hold - and that is a gift.” - Patrice M. Salmeri - StepUP Program Director

StepUP students are also offered invaluable opportunities to grow their leadership potential with professional coaching, leadership training, and public speaking engagements. By sharing their stories, they help to raise awareness of health issues and encourage others to commit to recovery.
