Accelerate U.P.

Accelerate U.P. (AUP) is a grassroots community project which offers free and confidential business coaching within Marquette County to promote entrepreneurial success. We believe the future of every community lies in capturing the talent, energy, and imagination of its people. AUP launched in 2013 to address the boom and bust cycle that is typical of mining.


The ultimate goal is to create as many jobs outside of the mining industry as we create in the industry.


Alger Technical Middle College

The Marquette Alger Technical Middle College is a public tuition-free early college program that offers students an integrated high school and college program. MATMC enables students  from throughput Marquette and Alger counties to earn a high school diploma, a significant number of college credits, and a Technical Certificate from
Northern Michigan University at no cost to the student or their families. This program, created by the partnering of Eagle Mine, Marquette-Alger RESA, local school districts, and NMU, will increase the technical skills in demand in Marquette County and create
jobs for local people.
