Upward Bound is an academic program which assists a diverse population of motivated low-income and first generation students to achieve their goals of reaching and succeeding in post-secondary education. The program provides opportunities for participants to succeed in pre-college performance and ultimately in their higher education pursuits.

Through ongoing professional development, TRiO Upward Bound staff creates and implements
comprehensive services and opportunities which foster student growth through academic and
cultural enrichment, social interaction, and service to others.
