WHAT IS GREATER U INSTITUTE? Greater U Institute is a one-stop premiere training facility for

personal appearance beauty professionals!

THE PROBLEM

There are only 1900 schools in the United States but there is not one that houses training for all programs in one place, or focuses on specialty licensing which allows students to graduate and become licensed working professionals at a fast pace. In order for students to gain multiple licensing students are required to transfer to several different schools. Most training facilities and staff are outdated, lack passion, and the drive needed for the future of the beauty industry!

THE SOLUTION

Greater U Institute is unlike any cosmetology training facility. We offer cross training in multiple sectors: Cosmetology, nail tech, barbering, esthetician, massage therapy, photography, tattoo artistry and so much more. GUI is unique in its training because we bring guest educators who are considered leading experts in their chosen field!

HELP US BE GREAT!

GUI is at the very beginning! In our initial angel investors meeting, we raised $10,333. So far this has allowed us to complete the required state curriculum, higher a web designer, and marketing team. We are seeking a minimum of $70,000 to help with the cost of build-out, and to purchase the tools and equipment required by the state of Texas to house a personal appearance facility.

Rumi said it best “A candle does not lose its light by lighting another”. With your donations, Greater U Institute can light up the world! At Greater U Institute we are your partners in shaping a Greater U!
