Our mission is to prepare students for higher education, guide their academic path, and give them the tools and resources needed. Our work as UB advisors goes far beyond the academic side as we strive to prepare students to be leaders in their community. Upward Bound is a family where the success of one member is mutually dependent upon the success and wellness and sustainability of the group. Your UB family will be your lifelong partners through your academic journey. We will celebrate successes, support each other through setbacks , and always be a home you can return to.
