The IUPUI Upward Bound program’s mission is to provide low-income, first-generation potential college students quality instruction and academic support to ensure students’ successful completion of a bachelor’s degree.
Upward Bound’s vision is to provide training and education to underprepared and first-generation students so that 100 percent of these students who begin postsecondary education will graduate. Upward Bound will incorporate new professional and peer-based mentoring components intended to increase student interest and strengthen self-confidence, assertiveness, and persistence. Upward Bound will also have new strategies to increase student-to-student and parent-to-student experiences. Program components include: academic enrichment, academic tutoring, Saturday seminars, summer component, math/science summer component, bridge, work-study, and mentoring.
