Welcome to Upward Bound Wyoming
The University of Wyoming’s Upward Bound and Upward Bound Math Science Projects seek to foster a supportive learning environment that encourages students’ academic success by providing program participants the skills and motivation necessary to enter and succeed in a program of postsecondary education and to cultivate positive regard for self and others.
By High School Graduation, UB and UBMS participants will:
- Enroll in and complete a college preparatory curriculum
- Display respect for other cultures and communities
- Develop positive relationships with peers and adults
- Participate in acts of civic responsibility
The goals of Upward Bound/UBMS are to
Raise high school GPAs to a level consistent with college entry
Prepare students for successful application and entry into college
Help students and families pursue federal financial aid and other sources of funding for college
Increase the number of first-generation and low-income students earning a college degree
