The UB Purpose
Approximately 800 Upward Bound Programs nationwide assist qualifying high school students in building the skills and motivation necessary for college success. Upward Bound does this by providing students with academic skill development, tutoring, college/career assistance and social/cultural exposure through a year-round support program for senior high school students.
The Success Story
Approximately 90% of the Truman State University Upward Bound graduates attend college! Approximately 50% of these students persist to college graduation.
