Summer UB 2018

WHAT IS UPWARD BOUND (UB)?

The Upward Bound (UB) project at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is a federally-funded TRIO program dedicated to the preparation for, admission to, and successful completion of a college degree for eligible (first-generation and/or low-income) high school students.

Through academic support, guided experiences, volunteer and job shadow opportunities, and much, much more, UB students are four times more likely to graduate from college than their peers from similar background.  

 

THANK YOU & BEST WISHES PAUL!

We would like to announce that Paul Krause, our former Assistant Director, has now retired after finishing his last summer session with us this summer. He had served 28 years with Upward Bound.  We want to take this time to thank him for his many years of service to the program and to the many students and families he has enabled to make that step towards higher education.  Your time and dedication to students and their access to higher education and to financial aid in particular is much appreciated.  We sincerely thank you and wish you the best as you complete your doctoral degree!
