Why is the UB Summer Component so Important?
Upward Bound is a year round program because we understand that the skills necessary to be successful need to be consistently nurtured. UB students are aware of the rigor of college and strive to improve their skills while gaining new insight. We offer these opportunities during the summer. Students are encouraged to push beyond their limitations and transform them into strengths.
Upward Bound projects provide academic instruction in mathematics, laboratory sciences, composition, literature, and foreign languages.
